Argentina completed an improbable comeback to claim its first Davis Cup title, storming back from the brink of elimination to defeat Croatia on Sunday. Argentina was one set from defeat in the fourth rubber, with Marin Cilic leading Juan Martin del Potro two sets to love, and they would mount a historic rally to lift the trophy. Del Potro turned in his first career two-set comeback 6-7(4), 2-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-3, followed by a clutch 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win for Federico Delbonis over Ivo Karlovic.
In his comeback year, the Argentine tennis star wants to relive the unique Olympic experience, but is aware that this time around he is not in his best form. A tale that started in London 2012, took two breaks to undergo wrist surgery, recharged batteries at Wimbledon less than a month ago, picked up some bonus energy in Italy, now goes to Rio and then back to Britain.
By Federico Coronado - Argentina's team prepares for this coming weekend's clash against Brazil. Statement of unity with controversial choice of words for tie versus sporting arch-rivals. Del Potro still not fit, will be there to assist teammates, anyway.
