Spain plays Djokovic’s Serbia and the Czech Republic plays in the final in Malaga


He Spanish Davis Cup team face this week Group Stage in Valenciawhere they will look to finish in the top two of group C to secure a ticket for the Final Eight in Malaga and, to do so, they will have great rivals. Serbiawhich will feature the world number one Novak Djokovicand Czechiain addition to South Korea as the fourth member.

David Ferrerwho will captain the Spanish team for the first time in Valencia, cannot hope Carlos Alcaraz. The world number two announced after falling in the semifinals of the United States Open that he will retire from Davis Cup play to recover physically and mentally from the grueling American tour.

The absence of the Murcian tennis player will cause Alexander Davidovich to act as the Spanish number one and have the opportunity to debut as a singles player in this competition, a “dream of mine when I was young,” admitted the man from Malaga.

The rest of the Spanish team is composed Roberto Bautistawho can return to compete after seven weeks, Bernabé Zapata, Alberto Ramos -which made up for Alcaraz’s loss in the last minute- and Marcel Granollerswhich will be one of the parts of the doubles.

The group stage begins this Tuesday with a clash between the two South Korea and one Serbia who still cannot count on the legendary Djokovic, who this Monday is still in New York and attends publicity and media commitments after winning the United States Open, his 24th Grand Slam, with Margaret Court equal of the most successful tennis players in history.

Spain will debut on Wednesday against Czechia, in a confrontation that, a priori, seems decisive to get one of the first two places in the group. The Czechs have in their team tennis players described by Ferrer as “very dangerous” such as Jiri Lehecka and Adam Pavlasek, who will play two singles matches in a team completed by Tomas Machac, Jakub Mensik.

The great conflict of this group will come on Friday in confrontation between Spain and Serbiawhere, in all likelihood, the Balkan team can count on Djokovic in a team that also consists of Laslo Djere, Miomir Kecmanovic, Dusan Lajovic and Hamad Medjedovic.

The Spanish team will end their participation in Sunday against South Korea, a priori, the strongest rival in the group, but it has Soonwoo Kwon, a very competitive tennis player as he showed last year in Valencia by defeating the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime. The Asians completed their team with Yun Seong Chung, Seongchan Hong, Jisung Nam and Minkyu Song.
