Davis Cup Results: Spain, Russia, Argentina and Serbia Advance

I'm gonna try to make this post a quickie 'cuz of the Oscars. BT Dubs, Zoe Saldana is looking all sorts of amazing: Can you say "SHUT IT DOWN"


Argentina moved on to the quarters of the Davis Cup behind the impressive comeback of David Nalbandian, who proved a large part in his country's victory over Sweden in a deciding singles match.

Spain also advanced, as the defending champs entered the final day of competition needing only 1 win to advance. Instead, the Spaniards got 2, downing Switzerland 4-1 behind singles victories by David Ferrer and Nicolas Almagro.

The Serbians clinched their first ever spot in the final 8 after an everlasting marathon match between Novak Djokovic and John Isner, won by the former 7-5, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6), 6-4. Sam Querrey then beat Victor Troicki in a match that meant nothing, but made the final scoreline look closer than it actually was. But, conclusively, the Americans put forth a stellar effort despite not having their anchors Andy Roddick, Mike Bryan and James Blake.

Russia closed out their rubber against India 3-2 after Mikhail Youzhny secured the victory with a commanding 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 win over Somdev Devvarman.
