Spain’s 3-0 against Ecuador in his debut in the Davis Cup finals was the desired result … But the two sets that were left by the way Pablo Carreño (against Emilio Gómez) and the doubles of the Asturian and Marcel Granollers (against Gonzalo Escobar and Diego Hidalgo) they can be a drag on aspirations to be in the quarterfinals.
Why? The six leaders from each group and the two best seconds. To be first, with a hypothetical 3-0 from Russia to Ecuador this afternoon, It would be necessary to defeat (Sunday 4:00 p.m., Let’s go) the battleship led by Daniil Medvedev. It seems complicated. The option of passing as second seems more realistic. In this case, if there is a tie to the elimination rounds won, decide the percentage of victories, sets and games. In this order.
If Spain beat Russia and was first, it would be paired with one of the best seconds and the tie would be played in Madrid on Thursday, December 2 (4:00 p.m.).
If those of Sergi Bruguera it’s seconds, they fall to the bottom of the frame and they would play the quarterfinals against the Group B champion, to be decided between Sweden captained by Robin Soderling and Kazakhstan, since Canada is ruled out. It would be Wednesday 1 (16:00).
