Spain captain hopeful on Nadal for Davis Cup
Question of the Day
BARCELONA, SPAIN (AP) - New Spain captain Alex Corretja remains hopeful that Rafael Nadal will be available to the Davis Cup champions despite the second-ranked Spaniard announcing he won't compete in the event in 2012.
Corretja says neither Nadal nor David Ferrer have personally told him that they will be unavailable for the five-time winners. Corretja plans to speak to the pair at the Australian Open to see "if they can or want to play, or if they can play certain series."
Corretja signed a two-year deal on Tuesday to replace Albert Costa, who led Spain to a second title in three years.
Nadal and fifth-ranked Ferrer said after the Argentina win that they wouldn't be available in an Olympic year.
