The Czech Republic will travel to Spain to meet on Armada territory for the Davis Cup final after both teams secured dominating wins this weekend.
The defending champs, cheered on the sidelines by an still-injured Rafael Nadal, crushed Israel 4-1 while the Czechs overwhelmed Croatia by the same scoreline and reached their first DC final in 29 years. Damn - what took ya so long?!
Congrats to both teams for their big wins. The Czechs will have a tough time, though, stealing the title away from the Spaniards especially if they face off in the spectacular Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas in Madrid with a Rafa-led Armada on red clay. But, you never know.
The final will take on December 4-6.
My fave pic from the weekend came courtesy of Italians Simone "The Beautiful" Bolelli + Potito Starace for obvs reasons (at least to me.)
