Kazakhstan are still a relatively new team to the Davis Cup having first played in 1995 compared to Great Britain’s debut in the first edition of the competition in 1900. They only qualified for the world group in 2011 and have gone on to reach the quarter-finals five times in the years since – most recently in 2018.

The two teams have faced each other only once, in the group stages of the 2019 Finals in Madrid. The Brits came through 2-1 victors on the day after Kyle Edmund picked up a straight sets win over Mikhail Kukushkin and doubles duo Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski won the decider 6-1, 6-4 against Kukushkin and Alexander Bublik.



Both teams come into this match-up playing for pride, having lost their matches against the USA and Netherlands.

Great Britain’s singles stars – Cam Norrie and Dan Evans – have enjoyed mixed success so far in Glasgow and will be hoping they can both pull it together at the same time. Norrie impressed against the Americans as he came from a set behind to defeat world No.12 Taylor Fritz 2-6, 7-6(2), 7-5, but couldn’t overthrow the power from Botic van de Zandschlup in his second match.

Evans on the other hand narrowly lost out to Tommy Paul in the Brits opening clash, but bounced back with a resounding 6-4, 6-4 win over Tallon Griekspoor on Friday night.

Their opponents in the Kazakhstan tie are likely to be Alexander Bublik and Mikhail Kukushkin – who have lost both of their singles matches so far.

World No.44, Bublik, is the wild card in this tie. You never know what you’re going to get with Bublik, who is renowned for his flair and attacking style on the court. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a good season so far, where he’s won his first career title in Marseille – defeating Alexander Zverev in the final – and having reached the final in Newport back in July.

Kazakhstan are the only team to have gone unbeaten in doubles so far at the Davis Cup Finals in Glasgow. Bublik has also starred on the doubles court alongside Aleksandr Nedovyesov to win both their matches in three-sets.

The Brits on the other hand have been on the wrong side of two deciding doubles clashes. It will be interesting to see if captain Leon Smith picks Andy Murray and Joe Salisbury once again to try and get their first victory, or if he leans on the skills of world No.3 Neal Skupski to get the win.
