Novak Djokovic's Serbia is in trouble for accessing the quarter-finals of Davis Cup 2021. To complicate the plans of the world number one, who gets rid of Jan-Lennard Struff without particular worries in the middle of the day, is essentially Domenik Koepfer, who at the beginning of the program breaks down the resistance of Filip Krajinovic at the same time.
The very solid Germany then signs the 2-1 with Krawietz and Puetz, who in the decisive double risk even slipping under two breaks in the deciding set. Obviously in the match against Cachic and Djokovic. What makes the difference is the jeu decisif.
Therefore, the situation of Sweden should also be monitored, which despite the defeat against Kazakhstan, which will be played all-for-all against Canada, would qualify as the best second given a better set difference. However, the situation still appears very complicated.
The Russia of Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev engages Spain, obviously orphan of Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alacaraz, at the head of Group A. The news? One of the two could be out of the top eight. The direct confrontation will be decisive.
In any case, for the world number two the one with Gomez turns out to be a very good competitive training: emblematic at the threshold of sixty minutes of play the 6-2 6-0 final. Rublev concedes something but still beats Quiroz in three sets.
There was also a lot of confusion in Group C with Great Britain aiming for qualification and throwing out Mannarino and Rinderknech's France. To make the passive acceptable for the transalpines, Herbert and Mahut think as usual.
A chance also for the Czech Republic, which, in order to get back in the conditions of passing as best second, should in any case beat Great Britain quite clearly. The match between Hungary and Australia takes place at the Pala Alpitour in Turin.
Already out, despite the 2-1 that matures in the decisive double. Rather defined the hierarchies of Group D: in fact, Croatia only needs a single success against Hungary to reach Italy. USA and Colombia would need a miracle in parallel to get back into the group of the best runners up.
Italy beat Colombia and a pass for the Davis Cup quarterfinals After the 2-1 against the United States, Italy also beats Pablo Gonzalez's Colombia 2-1. Waiting for the Italian team, in all probability, will be Marin Cilic's Croatia, which is missing a single victory with Hungary on day-4.
Victories for Lorenzo Sonego and Jannik Sinner. Sinner's problems against Galan practically last a set. Set in which, among other things, he does not keep a break advantage on two occasions. Having broken the equilibrium at 5-5, the Italian talented player still takes control of the matter and with a mega-partial 7-0 and closes the practice with a very rocky 7-5 6-0.
