- Matchday 2: September 14-15
- Matchday 3: September 16-17
Favourite rivalry at Davis Cup
Despite being a country competition, the Davis Cup Finals Group Stages scheduled several entertaining duels.
Italy vs Sweden
Despite the fact that the Swedish squad has little chance of progressing to the next round, this match is crucial for defining group A. Canada is untouchable after three bouts, but who will finish second is still up in the air.
It could be a variety of things depending on the outcome. If Sweden wins 3-0, Chile will progress to the next round. Even if they trail 2-1, Italy can still qualify if they win at least three sets against Sweden. A win for Italy would guarantee them a spot in the following round.
Great Britain vs France
Both teams have a chance to advance to the next round; the main thing is that they rely solely on themselves and must win; there is no other option. Australia has already qualified for the Davis Cup quarter-finals; all they need now is a partner.
Ironically, the United Kingdom is on the verge of elimination while still being one step away from finishing first in the group. If the United Kingdom wins, they will be the only team to have collected all three points; if they lose, they will finish second to France.
Spain vs South Korea
In this match, two teams will compete for at least one win to advance to the Davis Cup group round. Despite the fact that many of their singles matches went to three sets, they were unable to win.
The one saving grace in this duel is that the winner will not finish last. Arriving to this final flight with no prospect of advancing to the next round was a tremendous disappointment for the Spanish team.
Croatia vs Netherlands
The Netherlands were knocked out of first position by an astonishing triumph by the Finnish team over the USA. To reclaim the lead, the orange-clad team will need to defeat Croatia.
Croatia might have won a match in the two matches against the United States and Finland, but they did not receive points, leaving them as the only team without a chance to advance to the next stage.
