The 2021 Davis Cup Finals will be played from today to 5 December. The three groups are played in three different cities: Madrid, Turin and Innsbruck. The first of each group and the best runners-up fly to Madrid for the semifinals and final. In the last edition of 2019 Spain had triumphed in the final against Canada.

Italy in Turin

The Azzurri of captain Filippo Volandri play at the PalaAlpitour in Turin in group E with the United States and Colombia. Italy opens the tournament tomorrow against the United States, on Saturday the match against Colombia. The formula includes two singulars and the double. The first classified of the group crosses the first of the D group (Australia, Croatia and Hungary) in the quarterfinals – on Monday 29, also in Turin. The winner flies to Madrid for the finals.
