Argentine Davis team called early for drug tests
SEVILLE, SPAIN (AP) - Argentina's Davis Cup team was awakened for doping tests at 6:30 a.m. Thursday, a day before it begins the Davis Cup final against Spain.
"It's a shame since it was a rest day and we didn't get to rest," Argentina captain Tito Vazquez Vazquez said at the draw. "It didn't seem very appropriate. They could have done it the day before at another moment, but unfortunately that's not up to us to decide."
Argentine players David Nalbandian, Juan Monaco and Juan Martin del Potro were tested, Vazquez said. He didn't mention doubles player Eduardo Schwank.
"We all want a clean sport," said Rafael Nadal, who leads the Spanish team. "But the system and the way it is used leaves much to be desired."
Nadal will play Monaco in Friday's opening singles of the best-of-five series at Oympic Stadium. Argentina is trying to win its first title in four finals. Four-time champion Spain is going for a third victory in four years.
