Defending champions Spain outclassed Israel to reach their seventh Davis Cup final after claiming an unassailable 3-0 advantage to spare in Murcia.
With Israel lining up in its first-ever Davis Cup semi-final, and Spain in the last four for the fifth time in 10 years, the odds were stacked against the visitors continuing their fairytale run.
On Friday, David Ferrer comfortably defeated Harel Levy. The pair, who are separated by over 100 places in the men's rankings, were a mismatch, with the Spaniard dropping just eight games in a 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 win.
