Germany vs Spain – Live Stream Davis Cup 2018
SPAIN v GERMANY
Venue: Plaza de Toros de Valencia – Valencia, Spain
Surface: Clay (outdoors)
Five-time champion Spain welcomes back World No. 1 Rafael Nadal for the first time in the competition since September 2016 in its 17th meeting against Germany, the 1988-89, ’93 titlist. Germany leads Spain 10-6 overall, but the two nations are 4-4 in clay-court ties. Spain has won 26 straight home Davis Cup ties, with its last defeat at home coming against Brazil in 1999.
Nadal, who has not played since falling to Marin Cilic in the Australian Open quarter-finals more than two months ago, has won 22 consecutive singles rubbers since losing on debut in 2004 against Jiri Novak of the Czech Republic. The lefty is joined by Pablo Carreno Busta, Roberto Bautista Agut, David Ferrer and Lopez.
As Spain looks to reach the semi-finals for the first time since 2012, Germany’s last semi-final came in 2007. World No. 4 Alexander Zverev, the recent Miami Open finalist, contests his fourth tie alongside Philipp Kohlschreiber, Jan-Lennard Struff, Tim Puetz and Maximilian Marterer.
The winning nation meets Italy or France.
