David and Edu Schwank have won the doubles rubber for Argentina. After just under five hours, they defeated Marin Cilic and Ivo Karlovic 3-6, 7-6(6), 6-3, 6-7(6), 8-6 to give Argentina a 2-1 lead after the second day.
David's work in this tie is now done - after over ten hours on court. Tomorrow, it will fall to Delpo (or, if necessary, to Pico) to get Argentina to the semifinal.

There's been a line-up change - but on the Croatian side. Ivo Karlovic replaces Lovro Zovko.
But David will play together with Edu Schwank (source: AAT).
It's the second day of the Davis Cup quarterfinal weekend, time for the doubles rubber.
And these are the four players, who will contest the doubles. - Theoretically, at least.
As always in Davis Cup, both captains still have the chance to change the line-up or their doubles team. Changes like that can be made until one hour before the match. So it might not be until then that we'll know for sure whether it's going to be David and Edu Schwank against Marin Cilic and Lovro Zovko for the doubles.
David will want to play, there can be absolutely no doubt about that. How well he has been able to recover from his five-hour match yesterday (including alleged adductor problems)
- we'll have to wait and see.
I'll keep you posted.
