India's Leander Paes and Saketh Myneni lost 6-4 6-7(2) 4-6 4-6 but not without a brave fight that tested the Rio Olympic gold medallists Rafael Nadal and Marc Lopez, for three hours and 23 minutes.
The Indian team was up by a set and a break but the Spaniards worked their way back aided by some game-changing errors by Myneni. PTI
Playing his 54th tie, Leander Paes was eyeing a record of most number of doubles wins in the Cup history. He remains tied with Italian giant Nicola Pietrangeli on 42 wins. PTI
Nadal and Lopez, who won the doubles gold at the recent Rio Olympics, helped Spain take an unassailable 3-0 lead to enter the elite group after a two-year gap. PTI
Rafael Nadal came to the party just when it mattered most as he partnered Marc Lopez scripting a decisive win and giving Spain an unassailable 3-0 lead. PTI
Nadal missed the opening singles match on Friday following a reported stomach ache, but the world number four shrugged off early rustiness to lead the attack from the baseline. PTI
The home crowd seemed to have mixed sentiments about watching Nadal, one of the most popular tennis stars, play against India, as the contrasting banners suggest. PTI
