In essence, Spain lost this. It should never have gone to 5 matches.
Does that make his statements any less correct?
He still beat Almagro, so did old man Stepanek. Ferrer’s comfortable wins only strengthen the view that Almagro was the weak link and the Spanish doubles team recent triumphs did not guarantee them any success here which was evident in their loss.
