TENNIS WATCH: Davis Cup Final, Federer's 100th, dope accusation & corruption

Rafael Nadal may be tired after an uncharacteristic season.

However he is still motivated to lead Spain in its attempt to win a 5th Davis Cup title against Argentina.

This time Nadal will lead a Spain team on the clay surface at Olympic Stadium which includes David Ferrer and probable doubles partners Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco.

Argentina is seeking its first title in four attempts. Juan Martin del Potro and David Nalbandian could face Nadal and Ferrer in singles.

On Sunday, Roger Federer overpowered Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to win his 6th ATP finals title.

After a year that saw Federer , the Swiss star shrugged off a second-set letdown to beat Tsonga 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-3 for a record sixth title in the ATP World Tour Finals.

Playing in his 100th career final, Federer won 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 , sealing his 70th career title and took over the third place in the ATP rankings from Andy Murray.

It seems like Yannick Noah refused to back down from his accusations of doping in Spanish sports.

Nadal said Noah should be banned from commenting in the media.

Until he can produce any proof, I think Noah should keep his mouth shut.

Austrian tennis player Daniel Koellerer has appeared at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to challenge his lifetime ban for attempting to fix matches between October 2009 and July 2010.

Koellerer was the first tennis player banned for life for attempted corruption.

His ranking peaked at No. 55 in October 2009.
