Day three will started with Berdych v. Ferrer in a must win for Spain. If Ferrer, being his usual awesome self and playing some wonderful agressive tennis won in straight sets: 6-2, 6-3, 7-5. That meant the tennis season would end with a live 5th rubber between Stepanek v. Almagro. Sadly, for Spain, it ended with a loss as Stepanek won 6-4, 7-6(0), 3-6, 6-3.
