Chris Bowers and Craig Gabriel review an enthralling final day's play on Sunday at the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group semifinals, where Spain and Argentina have reached the Final to be played on 2-4 December.

World No. 2 Rafael Nadal secured Spain's vital third point with a whitewash of France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the first of Sunday's reverse singles 60 62 64.

The recently crowned US Open Champion Novak Djokovic attempted to prolong defending champion Serbia's hopes of a second title but he faultered with a lower back injury after trailing Juan Martin del Potro 76(5) 3-0, handing victory to the visiting Argentines.

Chris and Craig also wrap-up the World Group play-off ties, including nailbitting deciding fifth rubber battles in Israel and Russia. Australia and Switzerland were locked in the fifth set of the deciding fifth rubber when play was suspended due to darkness.
