The Davis Cup makes its comeback this Tuesday, September 12 with France facing Switzerland.
A few days after the US Open final, the Davis Cup will punctuate the weekend on the ATP circuit. On the Manchester side in England, the France team plays the group stage this Tuesday, September 12 against Switzerland. For this phase, Sébastien Grosjean, the captain, called Ugo Humbert, Arthur Fils, Adrian Mannarino, Edouard Roger Vasselin and Nicolas Mahut. Eyes will be particularly focused on young Arthur Fils, who is celebrating his first selection. "It's a source of pride (to have been called up). It's certain that since we were little, we've wanted to play for our country. I've watched a lot of matches on TV, I've supported France quite a bit .I'm very happy to wear this number 93 and I'm going to help the team as much as possible throughout this week."
The Swiss will be the outsiders of this group B (Switzerland, Australia, Great Britain and France) despite the presence of Stan Wawrinka (40th). Captain Severin Lüthi's team is also made up of Bernese Dominic Stricker (90th), Leandro Riedi (152nd), Alexander Ritschard (211th) and Marc-Andrea Hüsler (101st).
This group stage of the Davis Cup will be broadcast in full by the BeIN Sports group. At the same time, L’Équipe Live will also offer French team matches on its digital platform.
The first meeting will begin at 1 p.m., Tuesday, September 12. All matches will be played in the best of three sets with a tiebreak in all sets.
