Happy day for Argentine tennis

In a fantastic Saturday for our racquets, Argentina won the World Team Cup by defeating the Czech Republic in Dusseldorf, while Juan MONACO claimed his second career title with a win over Frenchman Gael MONFILS in the Hypo Group International tournament in Austria.

Unlucky in the ever-elusive Davis Cup, a strong Argentina team formed by Juan Ignacio CHELA, Agustín CALLERI and José ACASUSO secured our third title in this World Team Cup (1980 and 2002).

For MONACO, a young an talented upcoming star, this title in Austria follows the one he obtained in Buenos Aires in February.

After a tough first set, won in tie-break (7-3), MONACO simply dominated MONFILS and took the second set with a comprehensive 6-0.

These great news come just in time for the start of Roland Garros where there will be a lot of Argentine in action.

Tough luck for Juan Martín DEL POTRO who will have to face non-other than defending-champion Rafael NADAL.

Good luck to our representatives in the French Open! VAMOS ARGENTINOS!
