The quarter-finals of Davic Cup will be held this weekend, from 7th until the 9th of April.
We have several interesting clashes ahead, Australia is hosting the United States of America and Spain is traveling to Serbia.
Also, we have a local derby between Gret Britain and France, and an interesting duel in Belgium where the home team will play against Italy.
Despite the fact that Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal are not participating in this round, we will see a lot of interesting matches because, all the participating nations in the quarter-finals, already won Davis Cup title, except Belgium. Their goal is for sure to repeat that achievement.
As we mentioned yesterday Novak Djokovic will lead his national team against Spain.
The Serbian national hero loves to play in Davis Cup and as he personally has said, this competition gives him a lot of energy and motives which last throughout the whole season.
Although the fans expected the meeting between him and Nadal this will not affect their desire to help the favorite person in the whole country to once again lead his team to the title.
Djokovic has a lot of difficulties since the start of the season, and he admitted that yesterday, saying this will be his chance to regain some confidence.
Spain will be without Rafael Nadal and the current number 19 on the ATP Rankings
Pablo Carreno Busta along with the help of Albert Ramos Vinolas will try to make a surprise in Belgrade.
For the second time in the last 11 years Australian semi-finals but that is not going to be an easy task for the home team because they will face the United States and this will be their 47th meeting in the history of Davis Cup.
These two teams are the most successful nations in this competition. The United States have 32 titles, while Australia has for less.
The United States will be led by Jack Sock who is currently in good shape John Isner, Sam Querrey, and Steve Johnson.
We can easily say that the US team hasn't got one individual that stands above the others. It is a team that is built from different players and is a combination of experience and young players.
That is not the situation in the Australian team. Nick Kyrgios is an absolute leader of Leyton Hewitt's team and the home fans are putting a lot of hope in young hot-headed talent.
Great Britain will have a tough task to win in France especially because they will face the home team without Andy Murray. With Murray, they would be favorites, in this situation chances are slightly bigger for the home team.
The French team chose clay as their turf, and Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans will be in a lot of trouble despite the fact that Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is not playing. Lucas Pouille will be No. 1 racquet for the French because Gael Monfils is injured and absent, too.
Belgium will play against Italy in Charleroi. David Goffin and Steve Darcis will be the most important parts of their team. Italians are coming without Fabio Fognini who is injured. The Italian doctors are trying to recover him, but it is almost sure that he isn't going to play.
Andreas Seppi, Paolo Lorenzi, and Simone Bolelli are going to lead the Italian team.
