    Background: A member of the Chilean Davis Cup team in the current final against Italy, Patricio Cornejo suffered a heart attack in Santiago on Sunday (19 December). The previous day he played against Italy in a doubles match. Italy's Davis Cup win was secured by the doubles victory when Adriano Panatta and Paolo Bertolcci beat Jaime Filliol and Cornejo 3-6, 6-2, 9-7, 6-3.

    SYNOPSIS: The Italians were warmly received by the home crowd in Santiago, the Chilean capital. But despite some good volleys where they took the serve and carried it through to game, they lost the first set three-six.

    The Italians serving again -- and coming back to the two points in a row during the fourth set, when they were two sets up.

    A change of end as the Chileans go to the far side in a new set of clothes -- and temporarily benefit by taking a point.

    The Italians were assured of victory in the fourth set. It was the following day that Cornejo of Chile collapsed of a heart attack. He was banned by his doctor from playing for another 45 days.

    The Italians were by this stage firmly in command of the game, taking point after point to finally clinch game, set and match.

    The final match of the Davis Cup was played the next day -- but the doubles had by then put the Italians into an unbeatable position.
