After Argentina shuts out Germany at home, its players and captain are asked whether they had received notes of congratulation from top singles player Juan Martin del Potro, who decided not to play Davis Cup in 2013.

“No I haven’t received anything but I’m not sure about the [players],’ said captain Martin Jaite.

“I haven’t either,” said David Nalbandian, who does not get along with Del Potro.

“Who?” said Horacio Zeballos, who appeared to be taking a shot at Del Potro.

There are also reports that some team members were chanting anti-Del Potro songs.

Del Potro did later tweet: “Congratulations to the players, captains and technical team for the victory over Germany.”

Jaite did say he would ask Del Potro to play the country’s April tie against France, but del Potro’s camp reiterated that he would not reconsider his decision not to play this year.
