    USA, Argentina improve to 2-0 at World Team Cup Robin Soderling beats Maximo Gonzalez on Wednesday in Dusseldorf, but Argentina ends up winning the overall tie against Sweden. The United States also moves to 2-0 thanks to a clutch doubles victory.

    Robin Soderling improved to 2-0 in singles action at the World Team Cup on Wednesday, but his country is not helping him out. Soderling beat Maximo Gonzalez 6-1, 6-4 in the second singles rubber only to see Sweden's Simon Aspelin and Robert Lindstedt fall to Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela and Juan Monaco for the decisive doubles point.

    Two days after outlasting Sam Querrey of the USA in a third-set tiebreaker, Soderling had far less trouble with Gonzalez. The world No. 5 lost only four service points in the entire first set and added two more breaks in the second before serving out the match at 5-4. Still, it was not enough for Sweden, which dropped to 0-2 overall.

    Argentina improved to 2-0 as did the United States. For the second consecutive tie, Mardy Fish and John Isner won an all-important doubles point. The duo dispatched Kazakhstan's Andrey Golubev and Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3, 7-6(10). Fish had defeated Golubev one day earlier while Kukushkin had evened the tie with a win over Querrey.

    In other action, Spain stormed back from a 1-0 deficit to disappoint the host Germans. Daniel Gimeno-Traver kept his nation alive by upsetting Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4, 2-6, 6-3. Spain's Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez then got the best of Christopher Kas and Philipp Petzschner 7-6(7), 6-3 for the clinching victory.
