SPAIN is the 2008 Davis Cup CHAMPION

Without Rafa Nadal, Spain still managed to bring the Davis Cup back to Madrid after a short drought. Spain, heavily unfavored against the powerhouse team of Argentina, managed to come through, with style, in a 3-1 victory over the Argentines. Overcoming injuries and a CRAZY crowd in Mar Del Plata, Argentina, Feliciano Lopez, David Ferrer and Fernando Verdasco managed to bring home the cup forSpain. David Nalbandian of Argentina dismantled Ferrer in the opening singles match, surrendering just 7 games to the Spaniard, but Spain would go on to sweep the next 3 matches after an incredible 4-setter between world number 8 Juan Martin Del-Potro and Lopez. Argentina's team was caught in controvery when Nalbandian and teammate Augustin Calleri got into a scuffle at a time when contentiousness wasn't need, rather a comeback for the ages. Lopez and Verdasco teamed up for the doubles match against Nalbandian and Calleri. The Argentines won the first set 7-5, but would go on to lose the next three sets 5, 6 and 3. Just like that, Spain triumphed and retrieved the cup that they lost the last 4 years. So, who will take home the cup next year?Who was the biggest contributor to the Spaniard team this year?
