Who says you need 3 days to play a Davis Cup tie? The Armada don’t need no three days. Nope. Take away Rafa, Daveeed, Feli, and Nando and they still don’t need 3 days. How awesome is that? True, they were playing a young team who are fairly new to the World Group, but it’s still a very, very good new. They are through to the next round where they will play Austria tie in Spain on April 6th – 8th.
And I admit it…I squeeed a bit when Marc! took to the court in his first DC match and then again when they won. Marc!’s DC winning percentage: 100%. ;)

3rd Rubber match report: Spain win at a canter – by Alexandra Willis (daviscup.com). I think Marc! is happy.
