Unfortunately, we will be missing the world’s number two young player, Carlos Alcaraz. The Spanish tennis player opted to listen to his coaches and will not compete in the Davis Cup group stage in order to rest. Nonetheless, Spain remains a formidable opponent for the other teams in Group C.
Our favourite Spain vs Czech Republic predictions
The Czech Republic and Spain have always been evenly matched; in fact, the series is 4-3 in favor of the Spanish-speaking team. Despite the fact that they last played each other more than a decade ago, and the Czech squad won. Let’s look at each team to see who can provide the best tennis predictions today.
Spain to win 2-1
Despite the absence of Carlos Alcaraz, Spain boasts a strong lineup. Four of its five representatives are ranked in the top 100 in singles, and Granollers is ranked 15th in doubles.
Only Jiri Lehecka, the Czech team’s world number 30, has a solid ATP ranking. With the exception of Adam Pavlasek, who is ranked 57th in doubles, the rest of the team is above 100. I believe Jiri Lehecka can steal a point from Spain, but it will be the latter who wins.
Spain vs Czech Republic: Can the Spanish team win without Carlos Alcaraz?
With Alcaraz out, possibly Davidovic Fokina will be chosen to face the most difficult singles match against Lehecka. In any event, we anticipate highly interesting matches; view the Davis Cup 2023 schedule.
The Spanish team advanced to the Davis Cup quarterfinals the previous year, where they were defeated by Croatia. Bautista Agut was unable to defeat Borna Coric, and Carreo Busta was unable to defeat Marin Cilic. It was unnecessary to play the doubles match after those two defeats.
If Carlos Alcaraz, who had just won his first Grand Slam in New York and had become world number one for the first time, had been in the lineup, the outcome might have been different. Spain has a sufficient team for this geoup stage, but not enough to ignore its competitors.
- Alejandro Davidovich Fokina
- Roberto Bautista Agut
- Bernabe Zapata Miralles
- Albert Ramos Vinola
- Marcel Granollers
Captain: David Ferrer
