Carlos Alcaraz leads Spain for the Davis Cup tie against Romania

The Spanish team will seek their ticket to the next Davis Cup against Romania after failing to pass the group stage in the last edition. Carlos Alcaraz leads the select group of tennis players chosen by captain Sergi Bruguera for the tie to be held in Marbella on March 4 and 5.

Roberto Bautista, Pablo Carreño, Alejandro Davidovich and Marcel Granollers will accompany Alcaraz in search of adding a new presence in the Davis Cup. These are the ones chosen by Bruguera in the absence of the Spanish number one, Rafa Nadal. The captain will have to decide who will play the singles and who will accompany Granollers in the doubles.

By ranking, Bautista and Carreño are ahead of Alcaraz, although everything indicates that the one from El Palmar will be one of the chosen ones due to the great moment of form in which he finds himself. In fact, it was already going to be in the Davis Cup before having to leave after testing positive for Covid.

In this way, Bruguera has practically kept the same team that he initially chose for the Davis Cup Finals last November and from which Bautista and Alcaraz finally fell, with the only novelty being Alejandro Davidovich from Malaga who takes the place of the veteran Feliciano Lopez.

The Andalusian player, current number 50 in the ATP world ranking, will have the opportunity to debut, as will the young Alcaraz, who could not finally do so due to the coronavirus in the Finals a few months ago.

Spain will face Romania on the first weekend of March at the Hotel Puente Romano Tennis Club in Marbella and on clay, against whom they start as favorites in order to seal their ticket for a final phase of the team competition, which will launch a new format with 16 teams divided into four groups in as many different venues and from which the eight that will fight for the Salad Bowl in a fifth different venue will come out.
