Daniil Medvedev, Karen Khachanov, Andrey Rublev and Evgeny Donskoy were picked to play the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid. They will have a very tough group as they will play against Spain and Croatia. There could be a US Open final revenge by the world No.
4 against Rafael Nadal if both will be healthy enough to play after the London's ATP Finals. Canada picked Félix Auger-Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov, Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil. The team captain Frank Dancevic said: “It will be difficult, seeing as all of the qualified teams for the Finals are strong.
There are no weak opponents. In our group, the United States and Italy both have excellent players in singles and doubles. If we hope to go deep in this competition, we will have to be able to count on our best players and so I am very pleased that Félix, Denis, Milos and Vasek have all answered the call.
We have come close to achieving our goal in the past by reaching the semi-finals; the next step will be to be crowned champions. I believe that we now have the players and the depth to accomplish this." The Russian tennis federation member Kamelzon spoke about the nominees: "Daniil went through many tough matches but hopefully he will be able to support the Russian team in Davis Cup in Madrid.
The main thing is that he will be able to prepare for the main tournaments and show his best tennis like he did in the end of the summer and in the first half of autumn."
