Spain look towards future triumph after beating Romania in Davis Cup

Cluj-Napoca (Romania), July 17 (IANS) Spanish tennis player Roberto Bautista on Sunday said Spain is already thinking about their possible opponents in the play-offs for the World Group in the 2016 Davis Cup after their 4-1 win over Romania.

Bautista, who beat Romanian Florin Mergea with 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 in Saturday's second round of the Group 1 Europe/Africa, in Cluj-Napoca, told Efe that the team had already discussed their potential future opponents in the changing room after the match.

Bautista said he was happy with the way his team had played, adding that it is often difficult to play outside your home country.

Making his debut, teammate Pablo Carreño beat Adrian Ungur 6-3, 7-6 (5).

The Spanish team, captained by Conchita Martinez, should know by Tuesday who they will have to play in order to be promoted to the elite World Group in September.
