Occured in a team event taking place in essentially an individual sport.
But not in Ireland. More like Moscow.

Russia vs. USA, Davis Cup semi-finals.
After four rubbers, it's two a piece. Dimirty Tursunov plays Andy Roddick. Tursunov eventually triumphs, in five sets, 17-15 in the decider!

In the final Russia will play Argentina, who beat Australia, 3-0 up after saturday's doubles. Which given the background between Argentinian players and Lleyton Hewitt, was a definite grudge match.


Edit - Actually, no, Tursunov-Roddick wasn't the deciding rubber, so not quite as big as I initially thought. did confirm Russia's final place, but by 3-1

Why are they called "rubbers"?

Marat Safin vs Jose Acasuso to decide the Davis Cup. Never heard of Acasuso, but history shows that when it gets down to a deciding rubber, the visitors tend to win Davis Cup Finals - Russia herself won 3-2 in Paris four years ago. Must be unimaginable pressure on the home player, I suppose.
