Mayer Sends Argentina into Davis Cup Final

Argentina held off a spirited fight-back from Great Britain to reach their fifth Davis Cup final following a 3-2 victory in Glasgow.

The four-time runners-up held a 2-1 advantage heading into Sunday’s reverse singles, but Britain’s Andy Murray restored parity with a straight sets dismissal of Guido Pella- setting up a decisive fifth rubber.

Both sides made changes to their original line-ups, with Leonardo Mayer coming in for the exhausted Juan Martin del Potro, while Britain opted to go with Dan Evans, rather than Kyle Edmund.

Evans looked set to justify the faith of his captain when he took the first set of the fifth rubber in impressive fashion, but Mayer hit back with some impressive serving to level matters, before eventually outclassing his opponent in four sets to send Argentina into final against Croatia.

Marin Cilic was the star as Croatia overcame France to book a place in November’s final.
