Novak Djokovic's Serbia is in trouble. To complicate the plans of the world's number one, who ditches Jan-Lennard Struff with no particular worries in the middle of the day, it is basically Domenik Koepfer. Which at the beginning of the program breaks at the same time the resistance of Filip Krajinovic.
The very solid Germany then signed it 2-1 with Krawietz and Puetz, who in the decisive double risk even slipping below two breaks in the decisive set. Obviously in the match against Cachic and Djokovic. What makes the difference is the decisive one.
Therefore, the situation of Sweden should also be monitored, which despite the loss to Kazakhstan - which will be played by all for all against Canada - would qualify as the best runner-up given a better set difference. However, the situation still seems very complicated.
The Russia of Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev commits Spain, evidently the orphan of Rafa Nadal and Carlos Alacaraz, at the head of Group A. The news? One of the two could be in the top eight. The direct confrontation will be decisive.
In any case, for the world number two, Gómez is a very good competitive training: emblematic on the threshold of sixty minutes of play in the 6-2 and 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 eliminating Mannarino and Rinderknech's France. To make the passive acceptable to the transalpinos, Herbert and Mahut think as usual.
An opportunity also for the Czech Republic, which, to once again be in the conditions to pass as the best second, should in any case clearly beat Great Britain. The match between Hungary and Australia takes place at the Pala Alpitour in Turin.
Djokovic is currently playing at the Davis Cup
Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are currently tied for a men's record of 20 Grand Slam singles titles each after the Serb won three Majors this year. Federer's last Grand Slam triumph came at the 2018 Australian Open, while Nadal won his most recent Major at the 2020 French Open.
“A few years ago, the idea that anyone could win 10 Grand Slams was incredible, but now we have three guys with 20 and it is just amazing,” Gonzalez said. “In terms of the numbers, I’m sure Novak is going to end up with the most Grand Slams and maybe the best statistics, but for me there are other factors when you decide who is the greatest," Gonzalez continued.
"Novak is breaking all the records and it looks like he will continue to do that for a number of years. For me, you don’t just say this guy had the most the titles so he is the best," Gonzalez said. "You can pick who your favorite is for the way the three guys play.
I prefer Roger. His one-handed backhand, serve and volley and his style is more classic. When you watch Novak, he looks like he will never miss a ball and Rafa is running everywhere with pain all over his body, so it is tough to say who is the greatest”.
