Davis Cup Team Captain of Spain Sergi Bruguera After leaving the Davis Cup final, he was very proud of his team. Spain’s chances of defending the Davis Cup final title were hit hard when Rafael Nadal finished the season in August.
A few days before the Davis Cup final, Spain lost Roberto Bautista Agut due to an injury. Then, the day before the first Thailand, Spain lost Carlos Alcaraz after a positive COVID-19 test. Pablo Carreño Busta, Feliciano Lopez and Marcel Granolars all left on the court, but not enough for Spain to advance to the quarterfinals.
“We were always in trouble for the days leading up to the tournament. We can’t be proud of the team’s reaction,” Bruguera said at We Love Tennis. “They showed an absolute level of commitment and dedication. I couldn’t be proud of them anymore.”
Bruguera’s Spain fought very hard against Russia
Spain defeated Ecuador in their first Thailand, but lost to Spain 2-1 on Sunday. Lopez defeated Andrey Rublev, the world’s fifth-largest player, and made a big surprise with the opening rubber.
“Basically, the way Feri was playing in the first set is normal,” Rublev explained after the defeat. “And the way he started playing in the second and third sets, that doesn’t happen to him very often.
“Every time he plays here in Madrid, he’s doing his best. He’s very focused. He’s in control of his emotions. He’s doing his best in every way. That’s what he was doing today and he was playing great.
He deserved to win. ” 2021 US Open champion Daniil Medvedev has decided not to allow Spain to knock out his allies. In the second rubber, Medvedev defeated Carreño Basta and forced a decisive rubber. In the double slaver, Rublev and Karatsev defeated Granollers and Lopez to book tickets for the Russian quarterfinals.
