Captains backs Rafael Nadal and the Spanish team to beat Argentina

Spain will face Argentina in the Davis Cup quarter-finals on Friday. The Armada's team captain Sergi Bruguera previewed this upcoming match in an interview to the Spanish Tennis Federation channels. "It's a very powerful team, very solid, with players who compete very well in Davis Cup.

They are one of the most dangerous opponents and we need to be at the top to win every point, because there are just three matches and any of them is very important. Even if the Argentinean players were born on clay, they are used to this kind of surfaces too.

They are very hard fought rivals. I think it will be balanced matches with very long rallies because they are warriors from the baseline." Bruguera also reassessed the ties against Russia and Croatia: "The first goal is achieved, we reached the quarter-finals.

I think there were very balanced ties, especially the one against Russia, with a high level and we won 2-1. Then we played more relaxed against the Croatians." The captain also spoke about Roberto Bautista Agut leaving the team because of his father's death: "It was a very hard news.

The whole team is with him and we will support him as much as possible." Rafael Nadal played three matches so far this week defeating Borna Gojo and Karen Khachanov in singles and winning doubles match with Marcel Granollers against Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic. Nadal also played the ATP Finals in London last week winning two matches.
