davis cup: Nike and del Potro combine powers

by

Juan Martin del Potro nudged Argentina into a 2-0 lead against Russia by beating top 10er Nikolay Davydenko 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 (this, after Igor Andreev lost to Nalbandian). Del Potro has now won 23 out of his last 24 matches, picking up four titles along the way.

We give props to Nike for using a deeper shade of blue on the double-wide terry wristbands (compared to the headband), and making the color pop even more with that purple swoosh.

And in line with the rest of their summer/fall ’08 gear, there’s mesh (in tribal/tattoo form) on the shirt’s back.

Into the weekend: The boys will duke it out in reverse singles a day after cheering on the doubles match between Canas/Calleri and Kunitsyn/Tursunov. At least after last year’s Portland debacle, Tarpischev knows better than to put Kolya in play on a Saturday!

Show some love: The Argentine version of the tennis pieces aren’t available for mass consumption, but consider giving your gaucho some love via this Country Split Windrunner Jacket, $100; or the Hyperdunk shoes — both released in time for the Beijing Olympics.

    What a performance from both David Nalbandian and Juan Martin Del Potro. Neither did had much that much touble against the Russians.

    I was expecting a close game between Del Potro and Davydenko. But the Russians just proves that he does not have the motivation to be in this team.

    Now we will look forward to the double and I do hope that Argentina will close this tie by today.

    So what did you think about Nalbandian and Del Potro performance? Would certainly love to hear fom you.
