Team nominations
The deadline for official team nominations is 10 days before the tie begins.

Tie preview

Spain and Argentina will meet in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas final for the second time in four years.

The Spaniards qualified for the final thanks to an extraordinary performance by its No. 1 player Rafael Nadal. The world No.2 travelled from New York to Spain right after playing an exhausting 4-set final against Novak Djokovic and won his two singles matches dropping only ten games against two top players like Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The third point was earned by the always reliable David Ferrer.

Argentina travelled to Serbia for a semifinal clash in which the South Americans were clearly the underdogs. However, the Argentines took the first two singles points on Friday and arrived into the last day with a 2-1 lead over the locals. Novak Djokovic stepped into the court on Sunday for the first time in the tie to face Juan Martin del Potro and to try to level the score. But the Argentine played at a very high level and the Serb ended up retiring after his back problems became unbearable.

The 2008 Davis Cup final between the two nations took place in Mar del Plata (Argentina) and ended with a dramatic victory for a Spanish team that was missing its No. 1 player Rafael Nadal and was playing on its least favourite surface: hard.

Argentina’s only recent visit to Spain came in 2003 when a team formed by Gaston Gaudio, Mariano Zabaleta, Lucas Arnold Ker, Agustín Calleri and Gastón Gaudio was very close to cause a major upset when they forced the tie to go to the fifth rubber. However, Spain´s Carlos Moya did not give any option to Gaston Gaudio in the decisive match and the locals took a narrow 3-2 victory.

Spain has lifted the Davis Cup trophy in four occasions, all of them over the last eleven years (2000, 2004, 2008 and 2009).

Argentina finished runner-up in 1981, 2006 and 2008, but is yet to lift the trophy.

Re: Davis Cup Final 2-4 Dec 2011
Shame David isn't play the 1st singles match. Monaco has had a good year, but David can also give a bit extra when it comes to Davis Cup. But maybe he will play the last match against Ferrer.

Really want them to finally win the Davis Cup and get the revenge for the '08 final. Seems like a great atmosphere. David a bit emotional when they they played the national anthemn and their fans were singing.

Vamos Argentina :cheerleader:

Even if they win double, they'll lose this final. Sad but expected unlike Mar Del Plata where everybody thought Argentina would win

Re: Davis Cup Final 2-4 Dec 2011
I'm not sad like in Mar del Plata because I expected this disaster...Nalby is no more fit enough to play on clay, Delpo will be alone in next years because Nalby will probably retire at the end of 2012 and nobody can help Delpo to win this f***DC
