Argentina finally wins the Davis Cup beating Croatia after a super display of tennis, tenacity, and heart. After four failed attempts to win it that goes back to 1981, Argentina finally embraced the Cup that so badly tried to win. Great tennis like Vilas, Clerc, Nalbandian, Coria, Gaudio, and Monaco, just to mention a few, attempted to win this elusive cup. This time, the Argentine team, whose main player included Juan Martin Del Potro, embraced the highest national team tennis championship.
If we look for any ingredient that helped this team win the Cup, one can conclude that the internal team chemistry was just right. Although Del Potro was the undisputed leader of the team, he embraced a team spirit approach. He prioritized team cohesiveness and embraced the team’s goal, which was to win the cup over receiving ego-centered accolades or individual praising. Past Argentine teams have been known for having internal team disputes and conflicts over ego-driven needs. Not that we can guarantee winning by committing to team chemistry, but it surely does help to bring the members of the team together so they can push toward they common goal.
When you are a member of a team, make sure that everyone is on-board with the goal to be achieved, put emphasis on supporting one another and leave personal egos behind. When the goals are achieved, then celebrate them together because it takes the effort of all the parts to make it happen.
