Rafael Nadal kept Spains Davis Cup hopes alive by beating Alexander Zverez today in the fourth rubber of their quarter-final against Germany.

In front of a partisan crowd which needed little excuse to get excited, Nadal regularly produced his trademark fist pump en route to a Davis Cup-record 23rd straight win in singles and doubles, a run that stretches back to 2005.

World number one Rafael Nadal had not played since he retired from his Australian Open quarterfinal in January but made light work of Germany's Philip Kohlschreiber.

"I don't know if there will be one more year, I feel well, I am going week-by-week".

"I am very proud of the team, and I am really relieved because the last match was so close", France Captain, Yannick Noah, told the competition's official website.

The 36-year-old Ferrer held firm at the eighth game of the decider to truly save three break points and then pounced at 5-5 to fasten the break before serving out for success.

But then world number 92 Mikhail Kukushkin demonstrated the spirit and determination of this Kazhak team as he brought the scores level with victory over Borna Ćorić, 3-6, 7-6, 6-4, 6-2.

Croatia will take on the United States in the other semi-final, with both ties to be played on 14-16 September.
