BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA: Juan Ignacio Chela spoke of his delight in being part of Argentina's team and his hopes of Argentina finally winning the long-awaited Davis Cup by BNP Paribas title. Will this be their year?

It's looking like Serbia, who currently lead Sweden 2-0 in Halmstad, will be Argentina's opponent in the semifinal and the South Americans would need to be at full strength to challenge the defending champions on away soil.

On Friday, Chela partnered with Eduardo Schwank to overcome Kazakhstan's Evgeny Korolev and Yuriy Schukin in three sets to clinch Argentina's semifinal place.
