The National - News - - SPORT -

World No 2 Rafael Nadal has been named in the Spain squad for the Davis Cup fi­nals in Madrid next month. Nadal was in­cluded in a list of five Span­ish play­ers, with Roberto Bautista, Pablo Car­reno, Feli­ciano Lopez and Mar­cel Gra­nollers also picked by coach Sergi Bruguera. A wrist in­jury forced Nadal to with­draw from the Shang­hai Masters three weeks ago and it re­mains to be seen whether the 19-time Grand Slam cham­pion is fit enough to play. The Davis Cup starts on Novem­ber 18 at the Caja Mag­ica and Spain have been draw along­side Rus­sia and Croa­tia in Group B. Changes to the for­mat of the 119-year-old tour­na­ment mean 18 teams will con­test the fi­nals over the course of a week.
