Davis Cup : Argentina, Croatia into final

Andy Murray is itching for a break after an exhausting few months, culminating in defending champions Britain were knocked out by Argentina 3-2 in the Davis Cup semi-final.
The 29-year-old had a busy European summer when he reached the French Open final, followed by his second Wimbledon triumph, and then successfully defended his Olympic gold at Rio.
A tired Murray then lost to Japan's Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals of the US Open.

Murray was involved in both the singles and doubles matches in the Davis Cup semi-finals defeat against Argentina, including a five-hour marathon against Juan Martin del Potro.

ARGENTINA captain Daniel Orsanic said he would savour a special moment for his side after they claimed a place in the Davis Cup final following a 3-2 victory over holders Great Britain.
Leonardo Mayer fired Argentina into their fourth final in ten years after his victory over Dan Evans in the decisive fifth rubber.
Argentina, who will be hoping for their first victory in the tournament at the fifth attempt, will travel to Croatia for November’s final after the Croats booked their berth with a 3-2 win over France in Zadar.
“I am very proud of all the players. It is a very special moment for the whole team,” the Argentina captain said.
“It is an excellent victory to beat Great Britain here in Glasgow. It means a lot. I believe it will be an honour to play another final but today we will celebrate a semi-final victory.” Mayer secured Argentina’s place in their first final since 2011 with a 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 win over Evans in the second reverse singles rubber after Andy Murray’s straight sets victory over Guido Pella earlier in the day had given Great Britain some hope.
