Additionally, like last year, she is against Canada with number one Denis Shapovalov. In addition to Zverev, French Open champion Kevin Kreowitz / Andreas Maes is on the team.
The $ 7.5 million competition will take place February 1-5, just before the Australian Open. The Serbs won the final match against Spain with Rafael Nadal 2-1 last year. In the event with only a dozen teams remaining, 14 of the top 15 teams were represented in the rankings, with only record-breaking winner Roger Federer losing.
