Compared to last year, there are a few innovations in terms of condition. No longer 18, but 16 nations participate in the Davis Cup. The reduction in the number of participants also affects the group formation. The 16 nations that advanced to the group stage are divided into four groups of four instead of six groups of three.
The free-for-all mode is used in the respective groups. The two best teams in each group, ie eight in total, then advance to the Davis Cup final, which takes place in November 2022. It then continues with the knockout phase: with quarterfinals, semifinals and finally the final of the Davis Cup title 2022
Three matches are played per. battle between two teams, i.e. nation 1 against nation 2: two singles and a double. If you win at least two of them, you win the whole clash. To win a match – whether you are single or double – you need two successful sets. All of this applies not only to the group stage, but also to the knockout matches.
