Spain wins Davis Cup after Nadal-Del Potro epic

Rafeal Nadal went through rigorous 1-6 6-4 6-1 7-6 (7-0) test against the Argentinian giant Del Potro to win the Davis Cup for Spain. 

It was many times the tale of story was inching towards Del Potro, but Nadal on his favourite surface with his utter resilience changed the course of the match. Del Potro was left in tears at the end after playing some of the most powerful tennis ever seen on a court. The crucial fourth set swung this way and that, but Nadal put the closing lines of the book with an emotional tie-breaker to seek Spain home with Davis Cup.
It was as dominant a showing as has ever been seen against Nadal on clay.  Del Potro was doing what he could, but Nadal held his game and nerves and put a fighting game to end with a tie breaker in fourth set (7-0).On match point Nadal rapped a forehand winner up the line, a fitting end to an amazing match. The Spaniard fell to the ground in celebration, but in a moment of class got straight back up to hug his inconsolable opponent. This ultimately saved the sweat of Ferrer, who had to play Monaco in case Nadal had lost to the Argentinian Giant.
