Berlocq, Argentina advance in Davis Cup

April 7, 2013 at 5:35 PM   |   Comments

BUENOS AIRES, April 7 (UPI) -- Carlos Berlocq sent Argentina into the 2013 Davis Cup semifinals with a fifth-match upset win over Frances' Gilles Simon Sunday in Buenos Aires.

Berlocq got past Simon, ranked 13th in the world, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 to boost Argentina into a September semifinal match-up against the Czech Republic.

Simon came into the match with 4-2 record in his last six meetings against Berlocq but was bothered by a back injury sustained Friday in a loss against Argentina's Juan Monaco.

France had forced the decisive fifth match of the quarterfinal tie after Jo-Wilfried Tsonga surprised Monaco 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 in Sunday's first reverse singles contest.

Argentina will now go on to seek revenge on the Czechs, who eliminated them last year's semifinals.
