    PIQUE (Davis) Cup 2019, 18-24th November (MADRID), WORLD GROUP THREAD

    I must have misunderstood something as I thought this week’s ties were for 2019 qualification and not 2020. So will all the teams in this year’s finals also play in next year’s without having to qualify first? I had read it as a team had to reach the semis one year to be exempt from qualifying for the next year.
    However, without having been able to see any of this round of ties, it does not surprise me that matches were short and lacking atmosphere.

    You're right - it is the 2019 Final they are qualifying for. As for 2020 the rules are so complicated I may have got it wrong. It's still a rubbish format though

    Re: Davis Cup/ATP World Team Cup - NEW FORMAT

    It is a strange format but at least they've kept the advantage. I just watched Canada beat Slovakia and it was pretty good - the tennis quality, I mean. Must say it was strange to see the doubles being played and then the last 2 singles matches on the same day. I suppose it makes sense in a way because sometimes the Sunday matches were redundant but it did feel wrong. I am still looking forward to the end of the year's final tho'. Should be a great week - as long as there aren't many injured players.
    Andy. Rafa. Milos. What's not to like?

    Australia, Germany, Serbia and Italy have won their Davis Cup ties to make it through to the 18-nation World Cup-style event in Madrid in November.

    Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Netherlands and Russia also won their qualifying ties.


    They join automatic qualifiers Croatia, France, Spain and USA, plus wildcards Great Britain and Argentina, in the finals.

    I watched live on facebook and thought our draw was not too bad but I could be wrong of course.

    Oh and Great Britain have got Kazakhstan and the Netherlands in the their group. If the No. 1s show up, and they probably will given cash on offer, that means Kukushkin and Haase

    Just hope GB don’t make the semis, so that we have a chance of a ‘proper’ DC tie in 2020
