AR­GENTINA cap­tain Daniel Or­sanic said he would savour a spe­cial mo­ment for his side af­ter they claimed a place in the Davis Cup fi­nal fol­low­ing a 3-2 vic­tory over hold­ers Great Bri­tain. Leonardo Mayer fired Ar­gentina into their fourth fi­nal in 10 years af­ter his vic­tory over Dan Evans in the de­ci­sive fifth rub­ber. Ar­gentina, who will be hop­ing for their first vic­tory in the tour­na­ment at the fifth at­tempt, will travel to Croa­tia for Novem­ber’s fi­nal af­ter the Croats booked their berth with a 3-2 win over France in Zadar. “I am very proud of all the play­ers. It is a very spe­cial mo­ment for the whole team,” the Ar­gentina cap­tain said. “Leonardo’s match was some­thing we be­lieved could hap­pen but I think it was a great ef­fort on his part. Even though he is out of the top 100 that is not his level,” Or­sanic added. “Af­ter play­ing a lit­tle ner­vously in the first set he came out with his best tennis and the tennis we are used to see­ing that won a lot of Davis Cup matches in the past.“
