Argetina win 4-1 in Davis Cup

Jamie Baker earned the UK a consolation point today as Argentina completed a 4-1 victory in the Davis Cup in Buenos Aires.

Argentina had allready secured the World Group tie in the doubles yesterday, and a white wash look on the cards when their lead was extended when Jose Acasuso beat Alex Bogdanovic 7-5 7-5 earlier today. But world number 235 Jamie Baker then upset the odds with a good 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 win over Agustin Calleri, ranked 41 in the world.

Brittain now face the prospect of a play off to stay in the elite top 16 world group.

Jamie Baker, the young glaswegian said after the match,

We came down here for an unbelievably tough ask, I’d like to say a massive thank you to our captain, John (Lloyd)….During the whole circumstances surrounding Andy Murray not coming, John hasn’t faltered, he’s been so positive, and I wouldn’t rather have anyone else with me out on the court.
