WORLD GROUP NATIONS DECIDED FOR 2017 DAVIS CUP
18 Sep 2016

The 16-nation World Group is complete for next year's Davis Cup by BNP Paribas competition after another enthralling weekend of team tennis around the globe

With the dust barely settled on a gripping weekend of men's tennis, thoughts are already turning to next year's competition, which will see some familiar faces returning to action in the top flight of Davis Cup.

Most notably of all Spain will compete in the World Group after two years in Europe/Africa Zone Group I thanks to Conchita Martinez leading her team to victory over India in New Delhi this weekend.

The Spanish will be joined by another European nation making a welcome return to the top tier as Russia won promotion from Zone Group I at the expense of Kazakhstan to book its place in the World Group for the first time since 2012.

2014 Davis Cup champions Switzerland maintained their status among the elite 16 nations by coming through a tense encounter against Uzbekistan in Tashkent thanks to a win in the decisive fifth rubber for the inexperienced Antoine Bellier.

Belgium, who finished runners-up in 2015, were too strong for Brazil in Ostend, clinching victory with a famous doubles win for Ruben Bemelmans and Joris de Loore over Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares.

Australia made light work of their Slovakian opponents in Sydney, which was no bad thing given Sunday was a washout Down Under. Lleyton Hewitt's young brigade will likely be a force to be reckoned with in Davis Cup for years to come.

Canada also cruised to victory over an inexperienced Chilean outfit to maintain their status in the top tier, and there was a simliar tale on the other side of the world as Japan proved too good for Ukraine, winning 5-0.

Germany won the final play-off to keep its place in the World Group but it was anything but simple for Michael Kohlmann's men in Berlin. A youthful Polish side pushed the Germans to a decisive fifth rubber which was won by Jan-Lennard Struff against Hubert Hurkacz.

The eight play-off winners will form half of the World Group alongside the eight first round winners from this March which means the complete list of nations is as follows:

2017 World Group (alphabetical order)

Argentina
Australia
Belgium
Canada
Croatia
Czech Republic
France
Germany
Great Britain
Italy
Japan
Russia
Serbia
Spain
Switzerland
USA

The Draw for the 2017 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas will be held at the BNP Paribas offices in London on Thursday 22 September at 13:00 local time (12:00 GMT). The Draw will be streamed live on DavisCup.com.

Re: 2017 World Group Draw

What a shitty draw.

For the best comic relief on Men's Tennis Forums and to truly see how to create a classic troll thread, go here:

http://www.menstennisforums.com/2-general-messages/589282-nishikori-done.html

Rankings:
PAW: #39 - 2016 Olympic Silver Medalist
Suicide Tennis: #29 - Titles (2): 2016 Cincinnati, 2017 Geneva

Tennis writer: http://www.vavel.com/john-lupo/

Accurately predicted the winner of the 2015 French Open and 2016 Marseille finals.

Looks like trial by fire for the kid as Raonic is now out. He lost this week to a Japanese journeyman ranked outside the top 500 so this will be a huge step up for him.

Re: Davis Cup winner

Belgium vs Italy (Probably on clay as Goffin will want that to prepare for gravelseason) Belgium
Australia vs USA (Court advantage for no player, probably they'll go on grass or hard, homecourt advantage should favor Australia) Australia
France vs Great Britain (I don't see Murray playing this one after he had IW and Miami on Hard, he won't make the quick convertion to clay so wheiter the French choose clay he won't play, wheiter they choose hard he won't play either because he wants to get used to clay) France
Serbia vs Spain (I don't see Djokovic playing this one for the same reasons as Murray) Spain

Belgium vs Australia (home court clay probably for Belgium) Belgium
France vs Spain (hard courts should favor France for this one) France

France vs Belgium (no real court advantage for either team, homecourt for France) FRANCE wins
