Free Picks, Predictions & Odds: Davis Cup 2019
Often referred to as the “World Cup of Tennis”, the century-old competition takes us to Madrid for 108th edition of the Davis Cup, 2019.
The hard-court event runs from the 18-24th of November, involving 18 countries from around the globe.
One point of controversy leading up to the event, has been the change in format. The most significant change, is that the event will take place at one location and all of the fixtures will be within just one week.
All 18 teams are divided into six round-robin groups of three countries. In order to progress to the quarterfinals, teams must finish first or one of the two best second-place teams.
The opening game of the tournament is between France and Serbia, on Thursday the 21st.

Spain to win the Davis Cup 2019 (3.75)
The hosts of the Finals, Spain, are the bookies favourite for the outright Davis Cup 2019 winners. As well as having a strong roster, the homeside advantage is a big factor in the eyes of the bookmakers.
The lineup for the tournament looks to be; Rafael Nadal, Roberto Bautista Agut, Pablo Carreno Busta, Feliciano Lopez and Marcel Granollers. A very strong roster, with great depth led by the Manorcan superstar Nadal.
The downside for the favourites is their group. They will face last year’s champion Croatia, as well as an aspiring Russia team.
The hosts could get knocked out of the competition early on, which would be hugely disappointing for the competition. Alternatively, if they manage to qualify, it may be that they are exhausted from the high-intensity games they played in the groups.
We think the Spanish will go far, if they can get past the group stages. But until they’ve managed that, it’s in the balance.
Take Spain to win the Cup.
If I had to pick one moment of David Ferrer's career to pay him tribute, it would be that time he lifted Spain into the Davis Cup semifinals at home.— Bastien Fachan (@BastienFachan) May 8, 2019

France to win the Davis Cup 2019 (5.50)
France have a tough group, but they also have an excellent team. The team consists of Gael Monfils, Benoit Paire, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.
The 2017 Davis Cup winners will start the competition facing off against last years’ winners, who, incidentally, beat them 3-1 in the final.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gael Monfils will go up against Serbia’s Novak Djokovic and Filip Krajinovic. The bookmakers favour France, but only slightly. It’s possible that Serbia will overcome France in this one, as they’ll be up against the world #1.
The French have four of the top 29 singles players in the ATP rankings, including the Australian Open doubles winner Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
The depth of the France squad will probably mean they end up first in the group, but it’s very possible Serbia will grab one of the best second-place finish spots.

Serbia to win the Davis Cup 2019 (8.50)
Serbia would be a lot better off, if they knew the status of Novak Djokavic. Although he’s confirmed he’ll play, there is a level of doubt over his participation due to his injury in the US Open fourth round.
Initial reports claimed that was the end of Novak for the years’ tennis. But as time has gone on there have been suggestions that he may be back and ready to go. Recent social media posts would certainly imply he’ll be available.
In order to get out of the group, they’ll need the champ. Other than Djokovic, they have Dusan Lajovic, Filip Krajinovic, Viktor Troicki and Janko Tipsarevic.
They struggled in the qualifiers, just about scraping a win over Uzbekistan earlier in the competition. They’ll face off against France in the group, then if they qualify they’ll need to up their game if they hope to overcome the favourites Spain.
It all rests on the presence of Djokovic for us. See how things work out before taking a flutter on Serbia.
