3 Groups A B and E were playing today.

No surprise in Group B where Spain and Japon destroyed their opponent quite easily
Japon with a 3/0 win over Uruguay, made a big step to at least qualify as Best Second.
Nishioka may have a tricky match vs. Basilashvili later on but normally #2 and double are safe wins.

In Group A France surprisingly lost double rubber to Chile.... (that type of easy point lost costed them qualification in DC last December but now it is 4 Teams Group so they will have other chances)
Serbia defeated South Africa with a surprising win from Lajovic over Harris on HC (maybe Norrie is right and it is slow HC but they are not playing same venue).
France still has the more solid team basically because of its strong double, but Monfils is slightly worse than Anderson and Djokovic, and Paire can have bad days facing Harris or Lajovic so next days would be finally exciting.

In tricky Group E Argentina and Croatia are leading (with a surprising win from Coric over Thiem) but every tie will be difficult to win and only one team should qualify as there is no walk on teams like Moldova Georgia or Uruguay here.
