Rafa Nadal - "It was a tough match. Leander is one of the best players in doubles history. This was really important for us as we had been out of the World Group. I would like to thank all the fans. India is a special place. Thank you very much"

...

This has not been an easy win for the Spaniards in the last match. India would be disappointed to not win the match after being in the driver's seat.

Rafa Nadal has put in a scintillating display here and showed why he is one of the best players of all time. 

...

Spain win the match 3 sets to 1 and tie 3-0.

This has been stunning tennis from Rafa Nadal

30-15  What a piece of defending by Saket, who manages to put racquet on a ferocious cross court forehand. 

...

30-0 Rafa too good!!! Brilliant serve and Saket has no answer. Error

India need to break here.

...

The Spaniards will now serve to win the set, match and tie

Did someone say he was 'older'? Leander Paes is athletic and how today, and a beautiful drop shot not only staves off a break point for India, it wins them the game! India lead 4-1. 

...

India quickly win the first game of this set - and they've BROKEN to love to lead 2-1! 

...

Spain have cruised to a third-set win too! They lead India 2-1 and if they win this, they win the tie.

...

Spain are up 5-3 and India now need to serve to stay in it! 

...

Spain are up 4-3 and there's a funny quandary here. A lot of the crowd are shouting India, India - but there are a large number also shouting Rafa, Rafa. Funny, that.

...

Spain are leading 3-2 - but Myneni's taking the wheel here! He hits a beautiful backhand that bisects Nadal and Lopez.

...

We're level at one set all and Spain lead 3-1 in the third! 

...

That was cut and dry for Spain. They take the second set tiebreak and with it the set, 7-6.

...

At the second set tiebreak, Spain lead 4-0 and are up a mini-break. It looks like India are having a bit of a choke.
