Manuel Santana, the most successful player in Spanish Davis Cup history and 1966 Wimbledon champion, landed on the front page of the country's leading sports daily newspaper, Marca, when he predicted a 5-0 victory and called U.S. captain John McEnroe "a clown." Well, send in the clowns. Santana moved two matches closer to his home crowd-pleasing prediction--not exactly a huge leap--after the first day of this Davis Cup semifinal between Spain and the United States.

The ball went boinngggg. Soccer balls are not supposed to bounce like rubber. They aren't supposed to go bounding like a bloop single in Minneapolis. Once a soccer ball touches ground, it is likely to bounce up ankle-high, knee-high, waist-high, maybe even eye-high. But not over your head. Poor Zubizarreta. Bad enough spending your childhood being called last alphabetically. Bad enough being fired from your home club of Barcelona shortly before World Cup '94.

Perhaps that Roman chap had the right idea after all. Perhaps he hadn't been to too many toga parties. What was it he said? All Gaul is divided into three parts? Well Caesar was right. The country is split three ways--those who expectBrazil to win the World Cup, those who want France to triumph, and those who have taken the time to carefully analyze all the factors and realize there can be only one winner. No, not Italy, although old Julius might have liked that.
