    The first year of the Davis Cup with a new format. 18 teams were placed in six groups, then the knock-out stage for the 8 best teams, so five ties to play to win the trophy. Spaniards, who organised the first edition of the new format, were the main favorites and didn’t disappoint the local fans. In the concluding rubber Nadal [1] defeated Shapovalov [15] after intriguing two-setter. The Canadian saved a double match point in the tie-break (impressive style), but Nadal withstood a set point at *6:7 with a forehand winner and converted his third match point after a forehand error of the opponent.

    Serve & volley: Nadal 7/7, Shapovalov 1/2
