Davis Cup Final: A Battle of Surfaces

Alejandro MullerCorrespondent ISeptember 30, 2008

Although the Davis Cup is still almost three months away, Argentina is already facing a dilemma; where do you play the final?  The South Americans will host Spain in December, and could choose clay, grass, or hard courts.

So what surface should they choose? The answer might be surprising.

It is undeniable that Argentina has a very talented team with David Nalbandian, a perennial top ten, and Juan Martin del Potro, whom nobody could stop for large part of the summer.

They will probably complete their squad with Agustin Calleri and Jose Acasuso, who have made a solid doubles team.  Another undeniable fact is that Argentines are known to be at their best on clay, and their time to shine is usually during Roland Garros and the clay court season.
