Hopefully the Czech Republic win their first Davis Cup title as an independent nation, and complete the ITF Davis Cup/Fed Cup/Hopman Cup hat-trick.

The last time a nation won both the Davis and Fed Cups in the same year was the USA in 1990.

However I wouldn't begrudge Spain a title as then hopefully Ferrer would get the credit he deserves in his home country.

In the past few years Nadal has returned for Spain's Davis Cup finals having missed some of the their earlier ties during the year, and taken virtually all of the plaudits and credit from the Spanish public/media, who have completely ignored the efforts of the other hard-working guys in the team (especially Ferrer). Plus Spain probably would have won the 2009 and 2011 finals without Nadal anyway.
