Spain back in Davis Cup final with win over US
GIJON, Spain (AP) - David Ferrer beat John Isner 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 to send defending champion Spain back to the Davis Cup final with a 3-1 seminal victory over the United States on Sunday.
Helped by Isner's wayward shot-making, Ferrer rallied from a first-set deficit to stay unbeaten on clay in the competition with his 16th straight win.
The fifth-ranked Spaniard scored six break points and his American opponent was left slamming his racket in frustration towards the end as 70 unforced errors undid a positive start.
Spain, which will try to win its fourth title in five years, stretched its record home winning streak to 24 straight ties. It hasn't lost on clay since 1999.
