Spain in race for Davis Cup hat-trick


PARIS — Spain open their campaign to clinch the first hat-trick of Davis Cup wins since the United States in 1972 with a home tie against Switzerland but neither Rafael Nadal nor Roger Federer will be involved.

The absence of the two superstars of world tennis is indicative of the current problems facing the supreme team title in tennis that was first contested in 1900.

With the physical demands on players more and more acute, the big names in the game are opting out of defending the colours of their respective countries in the competition.

Federer and Nadal apart, this week's World Group first round ties will be notable for the absences, either through injury or choice, of Juan del Potro of Argentina, Andy Roddick of the United States and Russia's Nikolai Davydenko.
