Where is Great Britain vs Colombia taking place?

Located just outside of Bogota in Colombia, the teams are set to go head-to-head at the Pueblo Viejo Country Club. Set in the mountains at high altitude, the club will host all matches on their red clay courts.

Match schedule

Day one (play starts at 20:00 GMT):

  • Match one: Dan Evans (GBR) vs Nicolas Mejia (COL)
  • Match two: Cam Norrie (GBR) vs Nicolas Barrientos (COL)

Day two (play starts at 17:00 GMT):


Great Britain head to South America on a quest for a fourth consecutive Davis Cup Finals appearance. Despite going out in the group stages in Glasgow last year, the Brits will go into the tie with confidence and boasting their highest ranked team possible.

Norrie has had an electric start to the season – going unbeaten at the United Cup while defeating Rafael Nadal along the way, reaching the final in Auckland and making the third round at the Australian Open. Equally, Evans has battled hard against some of the top players in the game this year – including a strong win over Albert Ramos-Vinolas and a three-set battle with US Open semi-finalist, Frances Tiafoe.


Rising star Draper could be set to make his Davis Cup debut and become the latest LTA Colour Holder in Colombia. The 20-year-old recently broke into the top 40 having made the semi-finals in Adelaide with wins over Lorenzo Sonego and two Australian Open semi-finalists in Tommy Paul and Karen Khachanov.

Salisbury and Skupski form two halves of the top two ranked doubles teams in the world right now. Salisbury closed out last season by becoming the first Brit to win the men’s doubles at the Nitto ATP Finals, while Skupski became only the fourth British star to reach world No.1 on the ATP Tour in the Open Era.


However, they’ll be facing a completely different task when they head to Bogota, with Colombia choosing a venue and surface that should give them the advantage. 

Doubles duo Juan-Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah will be ones to watch. The two play together regularly on the ATP Tour, having found great success, and know each other’s games inside out. Cabal and Farah are two-time Grand Slam champions and despite not winning a title last year, they still reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon and the US Open.
