Can somebody please explain how they play the qf throuh the finals, I know they play it from friday yo sunday.

But is it just one match, so if Nole plays would that mean that he plays the qf and the serbia number 2 plays the sf on saturday and then nole plays the final on sunday if serbia wins it's matches to the final in this example.

Every tie comprises two singles and a doubles match, that is, three matches for all QF, SF and F stages. Captains will have to be very careful when to select a player to play both a singles and the doubles match in order to not wear them for an eventual final.

I don't like the format at all. Just 7 days for these many matches doesn't make any sense. Six groups sounds like too many. And I do agree the two second-best teams advancing to QF is ridiculous.
This could've been done way better.

Spain misses out even if Rafa does play. It's indoor after all. Crazy set up and it will be the death of Davis Cup...:crying:

There is Spain, Croatia and Russia whom all deserve to go through over Murray-less Britain while Netherlands shouldn't be in and Kazakhstan only has a player that plays wellish for davis cup.

Sorry but I hate this format. Who the hell came up with this sh!t?
I have the feeling that this new format will be a big letdown, most top players won't show up (Alexander Zverev already said he won't). Davis Cup in its original form may be back sooner than we think.

Such a horrible format.

If they were gonna do it this way, what they should have done instead is only have 16 teams in the finals, with 4 groups and 4 teams per group. You have those 4 teams play against each other (so 3 singles matches guaranteed for all singles players), and at the end 1 team from each group with the most wins/games/points moves on to the SFs where they face off against each other for a spot in the finals.

The way it is right now is just weird & plain dumb. But anyway, we'll see how it goes. Really wonder how many top 10 players end up showing up.
