The tournament format

In this year’s edition, 18 countries from all over the world have qualified for participation in the event. The tournament starts off with a group phase that consists of 6 groups of 3 countries. These play against each other once each. Group winners automatically go through to the next phase, a quarter-final knockout round, where they will also meet the 2 best second-placed national teams.

Group A: France, Serbia, Japan

France and Serbia will by vying for group domination here, with Serbia having the greatest trump card in the group’s deck: world number 2 Novak Djokovic. On the other hand, France can count on a more consistent team top tennis players, with the likes of Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Japan is considered to be an also-ran, lacking the famous players to make a mark.

Group B: Croatia, Spain, Russia

This group too will be a battle between the two nations that have players whose names are immediately recognizable as top 10 players in today’s tennis: Rafael Nadal for Spain, and Daniil Medvedev for Russia. Croatia will have a hard time getting anywhere with this opposition, despite the fact that the Croatian delegation is defending its title…

Can Croatia strike gold two years in a row? @8.90, it’s a highly rewarding bet to place!

Group C: Argentina, Germany, Chile

Group C looks like it could go anywhere, with both Argentina, Germany and Chile presenting quality delegations. Argentina has a good chance to push through to group victory if Diego Schwartzmann shows up in form. Germany, too, could have a surprise up its sleeve, with underdogs such as US Open revelation Dominik Koepfer.

Group D: Belgium, Australia, Colombia

Belgium’s hopes will hinge on the performance of offensive baseliner David Goffin, whose earlier exploits against the world’s best brought him to a career high 7th place in the world rankings back in 2017. At the moment, the top 10 is just out of his reach. The Belgian may expect solid opposition from Australian troublemaker Nick Kyrgios.

Support our delegation with a clever bet on Belgium to win group D @3.30!

Group E: Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Great Britain

Great Britain has Andy Murray, Kazakhstan has Mikhail Kukushkin, and the Netherlands have… Not the strongest team in this group, unfortunately. If Andy Murray plays his best tennis, there’s a good chance that Great Britain takes the lead here. Kazakhstan has a more balanced selection, so it could be a hard-fought battle for group supremacy here.

Odds may indicate a clear win for Great Britain, but what about Kazakhstan @4.65 as an outsider bet?

Group F: Italy, Canada, United States

Group F is truly an open battlefield, with 3 nations that have the talent to make a big run if they give it their all. Italy has its revelation Matteo Berrettini alongside Fabio Fognini, while Canada boasts Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov among its ranks. Meanwhile, the USA will hope for a more than stellar performance from Taylor Fritz.

Try a bet on Italy to end up winning this group and almost triple your stake @2.95!
