For the first time in history, the national team advanced to the Davis Cup finals for two consecutive years. It is also the only Asian country among the countries that advanced to the Davis Cup finals this year. However, last year, the national team did not achieve a single win in the Davis Cup finals. They achieved their first doubles win against Serbia in the Davis Cup finals, but they could not lead to victory. A total of 16 teams participate in the Davis Cup finals, known as the ‘Tennis World Cup’, divided into four groups. The top two teams from each group will advance to the Davis Cup Finals to be held in Malaga, Spain in November.

The opponent in the first round, Serbia, is Novak Djokovic (2nd place), who won his 24th major tournament at the US Open on the 11th. Even if Djokovic is missing, his power will not drop significantly. Spain also had Carlos Alcaraz (1st place) excluded from the list, but high-quality players such as Alejandro Davidovic Fochina (21st place) and Roberto Bautista Agut (41st place) are holding on. The national team has two losses to Spain and one loss to Serbia in its history. This is the first match against the Czech Republic.

Ace Kwon Soon-woo recovered from a shoulder injury and made his comeback after six months at the US Open. He was eliminated in the first round, but considering the hiatus, his performance was not bad. As Kwon Soon-woo aims to win the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games, he is expected to use the Davis Cup as an opportunity to improve his physical condition.

Coach Kim Young-jun said, “Korea has stronger teamwork than any other country. “I will lead the coaching staff and players as a ‘one team’ so that they can do their best in their respective roles,” he said. Captain Song Min-gyu also said, “I trained with full confidence just looking ahead. “I will try to realistically aim for one win,” he said.
