The teams qualified for the final phase of the Davis Cup in Malaga
Next November 22 will begin the last week of competition for the Davis Cup 2022, with the grand finale taking place on November 27. We have already established the crossings that we can enjoy at the Martín Carpena after the teams have fought in the different places: Valencia, Hamburg, Glasgow and Bologna. We analyze the ranked teamsincluding Spain Carlos Alcarazand the qualifications they will have to play in a few months.
Group A: Italy and Croatia
Italy showed an extraordinary level in a team that is renewing itself. Lorenzo Musetti and Jannik Sinner did not disappoint their fans to qualify as first of the group, supported by more experienced players like Fabio Fognini and Matteo Berrettini. Croatia did not depend on themselves, but they had it very face to face despite a big absence, that of Marin Cilic. The big disappointment in Group A was undoubtedly Argentina, who got us used to fighting for the bowl, always offering good duels. In this case, the Albicelestes suffered more than the Italians to make this transition within the team.
Group B: Spain and Canada
It was a hit or miss for Spain, who were playing for qualification against South Korea, but Roberto Bautista and Carlos Alcaraz passed the test with flying colors. The Spanish team will also have the stands on their side in Malaga, where they will play their quarter-final against Croatia. Félix Auger-Aliassime’s Canada caused a sensation during his visit to Valence. We’ll have to wait to find out if they’ll bring in reinforcements for this finals in November. A Serbia without Novak Djokovic couldn’t qualify, although they didn’t get that far either.
Group C: Germany and Australia
While it was already known that the two teams would play in Malaga, Germany gave a significant blow in the standings by beating Australia in the last match played in Hamburg. The Germans had to adapt quickly to this relapse in the injury of Alexander Zverev, who was ready to play in the Davis Cup. Now he has a bit more time to prepare for the finals. For its part, Australia showed different versions with very different players: Alex De Miñaur, Thanasi Kokkinakis, Jason Kubler or even Max Purcell in singles. We will see with which team they arrive in Malaga.
Group D: Netherlands and USA
Those of Botic Van de Zandschulp played in the big surprise of this qualifying phase of the Davis Cup with victories over the United States, Great Britain and Kazakhstan. From now on, the Dutch will have to continue working to maintain their level in Malaga. USA managed to survive tough heats to eventually qualify.
These are the duels of the quarter-finals of the Davis Cup:
- Italy vs USA
- Germany v Canada
- Australia vs Netherlands
- Spain vs Croatia
