This weekend has judged the outcome for the "top" contenders to lead to the finals of the renewed Davis Cup by Rakuten.
The n. 1 tennis player Rafael Nadal was the inspiration for a Spanish and dramatic victory over Great Britain! After his hometown and host city of the match suffered a powerful first blow from the ambitious British Kyle Edmund with a 6-3 7-6 (3) win at singles over the Spanish player Feliciano Lopez and teammate of Rafael Nadal in doubles, all the Spanish forces had to be paid to equalize this defeat. So it was, when Nadal won a 6-4 6-0 victory over Dan Evans and at the doubles against Jamie Murrey and Neal Skupski collaborating with Feliciano Lopez with a marginal victory of 7-6 (3) 7-6 (8).
On the other hand, Canada managed to reach the Davis Cup finals for the first time surprising Russia. But also in the case of Canada, something similar to Spain happened to equalize a previous defeat. Specifically, while Canada's Vasek Pospisil lagged behind in the first excellent efford of Andrey Rublev's with 4-6 4-6 at the singles, when he joined forces with Denis Shapovalov who had been ahead of his rival Karen Khachanov with 6-4 4-6 6-4, won a solemn victory with 6-3 3-6 7-6 (5).
Monday's results are expected to announce the big winner of the Davis Cup. Will Canada achieve it's first historic victory, or will Spain be the victor confirming the rule?
