Madrid, September 17 (European Press) –
The Davis Cup Final 8 added three new qualifiers on Saturday, with Australia, Canada and Finland making their way through their groups to join Serbia, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, with two tickets up for grabs on Sunday.
Davis, who was aiming to be in Malaga from November 21-26 to compete for the Salad Bowl title, was decided in the third set, a first-place match only this Saturday, with the all-Czech playing against a Serbia that did not work out for Novak Djokovic. Looking to add at least doubles.
On the other hand, in Group Four, Finland confirmed its surprise by accompanying the Netherlands in the rankings thanks to its victory over the United States, accompanied by Otto Virtanen and Emil Ruusuvuori. The Finnish doubles team also defeated the Americans (3-0).
In addition, Australia qualified for Malaga by defeating Switzerland 3-0 led by Thanasi Kokkinakis and Alex de Minaur. Thus, France and Britain will play in a direct duel for the other card in Group B in the final qualifying round on Sunday.
Meanwhile, with Group A, Canada will once again be among the top teams in search of the salad bowl with a 2-1 win over Chile. After Alexis Galarneau’s 1-0 win, Chile’s Nicolas Jarry evened the series, but doubles gave the Americans a pass. Italy has the other ticket in hand, one victory away from eliminating Sweden.
