    I was keeping tabs on the Delpo - Cilic match, and when I saw Delpo had managed to win the 3rd set, I felt certain he would go on to win. Cilic and Delpo might both be one slam wonders, but Delpo is a different beastie entirely. When it's a big match you just know he's going to bring the fire. Cilic I'm not so sure about. If he gets hot then he has a chance, but when your balls are on the line? Nah...

    Cilic ought to be tired of letting his opponents come from behind down two sets to love. I saw on the graphic that he has 79 errors! That is ridiculous.

    I agree with this. I was only vaguely checking on scores, and I was impressed that Delpo pulled it off, but I do think your assessment of the two is right. Now, Karlovic v. Delbonis. I'll be very impressed if Delbonis wins, because it takes a lot of concentration to beat a big server like Dr. Evil.

    I'm torn in this match now. On the one hand, Delpo has been trying to win this for years. On the other hand Ivo has nothing else to his name. I wouldn't begrudge him this glory. On balance I'll go with Argentina

    I haven't seen anything, but glad to hear of Delbonis. Will he get a "Davis Cup bump" early next year? And JMDP has done well by his country this year...he may bring a lot of confidence to the new season, if his body is ready for it. Congratulations to Argentina! Talk about getting a monkey off your back....
