Seville: Argentina is already putting the pressure on Spain, calling the defending champions the favourites on home soil in the Davis Cup final.
Led by second-ranked Rafael Nadal and No. 5 David Ferrer, Spain is vying for its third title in four years while the South Americans are looking for their first in fourth attempts. The best-of-five series begins Friday on clay at the Olympic Stadium with two opening singles matches.
"There's always pressure, especially in a final. But they are favored over us and have more pressure," Argentina player David Nalbandian said on Tuesday. "It is a very complicated series, one where we can win or lose all the points. We have to be well-prepared."
