Advantage for Argentina. On the deadline to confirm the training, Belarus announced a decimated team, without its two best players, to be a visitor in Buenos Aires on September 18 and 19 for the Davis Cup.
Belarus will not have on the court Ilya Ivashka (53rd in the world), its current figure, and neither will Egor Gerasimov (83rd in the ATP ranking).
Those summoned were Alexander Zgirovsky (1138 °), Martin Borisiouk (1325 °), both Under 21, plus two youth, such as Erik Arutiunian (36 °, his junior ranking) and Daniil Ostapenkov (60 ° in juniors).
Undoubtedly, the Argentine team will win the home series. Gastón Gaudio chose Diego Schwartzman, Guido Pella, Horacio Zeballos, Máximo González and, for the first time in his career, Federico Coria.
The series will be played at the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club, one week after the end of the US Open, for the reclassification playoffs for World Group I.
Argentina seeks to return to the forefront of the world, from which it came out in March 2020 when it lost to Colombia. In 2019, Argentina reached the Davis Cup quarter-finals, when they lost to Spain.
