The Spaniards overcame the loss of world number one Rafael Nadal to a knee injury to prevail 3-1 in Mar del Plata and secure a third Davis Cup title. Their feat was made all the more impressive for the fact the South Americans had not lost a home tie since 1998.
“I started a process three years ago and I think it has come to an end,” said Sanchez Vicario. “It finished with a prize thanks to all these players. I hope the incoming captain can live the magic moments I live and he can be as lucky as I was.”
Argentina captain Alberto Mancini, meanwhile, refused to reveal whether he intended to remain at the helm following his team’s defeat.
He said: “This is something I have already decided, but the only people who know are me and the people who need to be aware. This is not the right moment to talk about that.”
