Nalbandian Opens the Series against Andreev.
The man from Córdoba, David Nalbandian, the best player in the Argentine team, will open the series against Russia in the semifinals of the Davis Cup, to be played in the Mary Terán de Weis Stadium in Parque Roca (Buenos Aires). The Argentines were pleased with the results of the lots since David is playing well and a point in favor would allow Juan del Potro to play more relaxed the second point against Nikolav Davydenko; and because he will have more time to relax thinking about the possibility that the man from Unquilllo could be part of the point in doubles on Saturday. For now they are all speculations. The captain Alberto “Luli” Mancini will wait to see the results on the first day to decide on the doubles. The series seems to be neck to neck, with several misteries, but the national team remains optimistic.
