BAMBERG, GERMANY: It was the worst birthday present possible for Germany's captain Patrik Kuhnen. His doubles team of Tommy Haas and Philipp Petzschener threw away a two-sets-to-love lead and in so doing lost the first round tie to Argentina.

But Kuhnen remains positive his country can bounce back in September's World Group play-offs and come back stronger in next year's competition.

For the Argentines, it was a dream way to seal victory and David Nalbandian reflects on his country's first comeback from 0-2 down in a World Group doubles rubber.
