Last year’s Davis Cup runners up Argentina will take on Germany in their first round Davis Cup tie in Germany and they will have to do it without the services of their highest ranked player in the ATP Tour circuit, Juan Martin Del Potro.

The world number ten has been a consistent performer for his country throughout the last couple of editions of the Davis Cup as well as on the Tour circuit but David Nalbandian believes that the team is well balanced to not feel the absence of the high profile player.

According to Nalbandian, the Argentines have been knocking on the doors of Davis Cup glory for the last few years now and he believes that this season is their best chance yet to bring the famous trophy home for the first time. Asked whether the team would face any difficulties in the absence of their star man Juan Martin Del Potro, Nalbandian said that the team is balanced enough at the moment, having played together for many years now and under the new captain, they will have a new strategy that will hopefully cancel out the fact that they would be missing the highest ranked Argentine in their lineup.

Del Potro himself said that he would be missing the Davis Cup tie and the boys pretty much, having to sit at home and nursing his injury but he also added that he might travel to Germany to watch them play if the doctor permits.

Juan Martin Del Potro also added that unlike some of the big name players who plan to skip the Davis Cup this year because of the Olympic Games, he will play for Argentina if they progress beyond this match and not complain about fatigue or the Olympic Games taking its toll on him.
