You had to feel for Verdasco as well. He found Acasuso after the celebration with his Spanish teammates and offered an embrace. The Spaniard, who has been overcome with nerves on many occasions, could relate. I’ve never enjoyed watching him play, and his hair can be a little rough on my American sensibility, but Verdasco has always seemed humble for a professional athlete. Like Lopez, he banished his reputation as a head case this weekend. And like Lopez, he seized his Davis Cup moment when it unexpectedly appeared in front of him.
