Both the Netherlands and the USA won the first matches in the Davis Cup Finals Group stages in Split. Whoever wins this one will already advance to the Final 8 tournament in Malaga and have a chance to fight for the Davis Cup title.

Our favourite Netherlands vs USA match predictions

USA is the most successful nation in the Davis Cup and they seem like a team that can go all the way this year. The Netherlands are also solid, and this will probably be the match of the day in the Davis Cup on Thursday. Check in our predictions and tips article.

USA to win 2-1

With Frances Tiafoe and Tommy Paul being in the top 15 in the ATP rankings, the Americans will get the job done in the singles matches. The Netherlands simply has no power to be competitive in the singles with Tallon Griekspoor being the only decent player. They will definitely have a chance in the doubles match especially if team USA wins both singles.

Can USA book their ticket to the Final 8?

Now that we have our Netherlands vs USA prediction, let’s see how these teams performed in the previous editions of the Davis Cup.

Netherlands preview

The Netherlands have not seen much success in the Davis Cup history with the 2001 semifinals being their best result. They had a solid season last year defeating the USA and will have a other chance to play against them in Split. The absence of Botic Van Den Zandschulp is something that will be felt in the matchup against the USA. They managed to beat Finland 2-1 in the opening round but that was done much more difficult than expected. Tallon Griekspoor is the only singles player that will stand some chance against his American opponent and if he manages to win then the Netherlands will have a chance in the doubles match.

Full team

  • Matwe Middelkoop
  • Wesley Koolhof
  • Tallon Griekspoor
  • Tim Van Ritjhoven

Captain: Paul Haarhuis

USA preview

Team USA is on top of the All-time list with 32 titles in the Davis Cup. The last one came in 2007 and the Americans hope that this will be the year when they will end up the drought.

Team USA will not have their highest ranked player Taylor Fritz in Croatia but this team looks good enough to win the group and advance to the Final 8 tournament. They defeated the host team Croatia in the opening round with a brilliant win in the doubles match. This time that will probably not be needed as Tiafoe and Paul are much better than their opponents in the singles competition.

Full team

  • France Tiafoe
  • Tommy Paul
  • Mackenzie McDonald
  • Austin Krajicek
  • Rajeev Ram

Captain: Bob Bryan
