In an interview to EFE Jaume Munar spoke about Spain facing Croatia and Russia in the Davis Cup groups stages. Munar said: "The two are very complicated. It's indoor fast, at an altitude, in Madrid the ball goes quickly and if we could we would not pick this court, but we are able to fit to any surface and we will show it." Is it the group of the death? "Spain has a very complicated group, but they have a great team and it's also the favorite, we play at home.
I know the group is very complicated but first of all we have Rafa (Nadal), then Roberto (Bautista Agut), Pablo (Carreno Busta) and Feli (Lopez), which makes up a great team. We have our chances." What does it mean playing this competition in Spain? "It's special for the great team we have.
I think having this kind of events in our country is something that helps us grow at a world level. I think sports-wise Spain has a lot to teach to the world. Having this tournament' category in our country makes us be a world class brand in the sport." On his thoughts about the new Davis Cup format, Munar concluded: "I do not know if it's the right format, I do not want to give opinions because we do not know it yet, but it's the Davis Cup, it needed a change.
We will see how it works, if this change needs another change, but what's for sure is that the previous Davis Cup was making the scenario very complicated."
