The new-look Davis Cup has an old-school feel in 2019.

Rafael Nadal and Feliciano Lopez knocked off Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski 7-6(6) 7-6(6) to book a spot in the final alongside Canada.

It will be Spain's first appearance in the Davis Cup final since 2012.


Nadal, who kept Spain alive in the tie by defeating Dan Evans 6-4 6-0 in Saturday's second rubber, improved to 7-0 in singles and doubles combined this week in Madrid.

Nadal, who boasts a 28-1 lifetime singles record in the competition and 36-5 overall, hopes to lead Spain to their fifth Davis Cup title on Sunday and first since 2011.

Nadal and Lopez had to battle extremely hard to get past Murray and Skupski—they saved four set points in the second set and finally wrapped up the victory on their second match point.
