"you know, dude? I really wanted that cup" - Argentinian feelings about Davis Cup
 
You know... Argentinian fans are one the most passionate fans in all the world. We've been described like that by so many people from so many different countries.
So... I think I can say that.

We're a Football (soccer) nation, and our biggest soccer clubs like Boca, River, San Lorenzo, Racing, Independiente or other ones can bring 40.000 people every weekend to a stadium.
When the National Football Team plays, there are always 60.000 tickets sold in less than a week.

We do care so much to the "National sports". For the most people here, Davis Cup is the most important tennis tournament, because they're not playing for themselves, they're playing for Argentina, for the argentinan flag. (I'll talk about this later).

So many people call us "The Argies"... Here, some people seems to hate that term. In my opinion, I love it. I love the world talking about my country. I love to be regognized.

The "Ussual argentinian" seems to be kinda... egocentric. "He" thinks he's the center of the world and he doesn't care about the other ones.
I think i'm not like that, but I take it the funny way and I like the Argentinian to be recognized as that, it's kinda cool :D .

When Davis Cup is played, the matches are broadcasted by the Open Television. In the TV channel with the most high rating (Canal Trece).

And those days, the whole country is behind tennis, you'd probably see people who only knows Nalbandian and Del Potro, and who doesn't give a shit about the sport, cheering for Argentina with his soul and his heart.

The Argentinian tennis fan, usually cares about DC too, and those fans are the ones who travel to anywhere in the country if they can, to cheer and scream like an elefant in every single point won by our player (whoever it'll be).

I was talking to my friends via Facebook, and one of them told to me "You know, dude... I really wanted that cup. I really wanted Argentina to win this and to be part of DC history".
He isn't a big tennis fan, he likes tennis, watches some Grand Slam matches, but he doesn't know (for example) how many titles did Delpo, Fed, Monaco or Nalbandian won in 2011.

But, in terms of Davis Cup, we are one.
One only big soul just wanting our country to win, and to be up there. With that Davis Cup in our hands.
We cried when Acasuso lost to Safin and Verdasco, we cried 'till we didn't have any more tears when Rafa screamed that big "VAMOS!".
Delpo cried too... He cried vs Ferrer, he cried during the match vs Nadal. But we don't care.
We lost fighting, we lost fighting like gladiators, like big men.

It's another lost final. But we're not gonna give up.
Vamos Argentina!!!!



Thanks MTF. I'm so happy I can share this with the world. It's just my humble opinion, my love to my country and the feelings DC awakes in eveyone of us.
I hope you can enjoy this.

Still waiting for a prodigy to bring it home. Maybe he is not born yet. But I think he will appear and revenge all those chokes in style.

One day.

Too bad some of us won't live to see it. :(

there's no such a thing, there's a "Latin American players' forum" and I'm not talking about Argentinian players, i'm talking about the fans.

Really, thabks.
I think i'm representing my country sharing my opinion.
Also my friends' opinion.

My idea is to show how we feel about this cup. I don't consider DC a player's tournament, it's a nation tournament, a team, a country besides some players.

Great post and sentiment. Best of luck to you, fans and the players of your country.

I support Argentina in football after my own national team (USA) and I am always awed by how devoted and proud the players are of their country. I really wanted Argentina to win Davis Cup this year, nice to read from a native Argie what these events mean to the Argentines. I really hope you guys will win next year :D

DelPo will bring it home, hopefully with nalby still on board...it was a tough year behind jmdp and the ferrer fatigue certainly didnt help today

I love Argentina. It's one of my favorite countries. Your attitude today was amazing. The atmosphere and cheering from the Argentine crowd was superb. I know how you feel. Del Potro tried his best, he cried. As you said yourself.. you fought hard. Again, Argentina can be proud of the performance of Delpo today, he never gave up. I know how much this means to you, and I know you guys are part of a very proud country.

But don't worry, you'll win next year. Hold your heads high. You have nothing to be ashamed of. You did well! There's always next year!

Argentina needs desperately both Del Potro and Nalbandian to play in Germany or they may be out even in the first round next year...

I would really say it's Argentina's big and last chance to do it. Nalbandian will be retiring soon, Del Potro isn't as crazy for Davis Cup as Nalbandian and there is no 2nd singles player to do well outside clay...

Least Argentines understand the history and the tradition of Davis Cup unlike other nations.

Really wanted Argentina to win...they missed a huge chance in 2008 and really deserve the cup.
