Great Britain drawn against Canada, Finland & Argentina for Davis Cup Finals Group Stage

• 2 MINUTE READ

The Lexus GB Davis Cup team will face Canada, Finland and Argentina at the Davis Cup Finals Group Stages in Manchester from 10-15 September.

The Brits have been drawn in Group D, which will once again return to Manchester’s AO Arena later this year.

The teams will compete across the week in a round-robin group, with the top two nations in each group progressing to the Final 8 from 19-24 November.

The remaining three groups will be held in Bologna, Valencia and Zhuhai.

Lexus GB Davis Cup captain and Head of Men's Tennis at the LTA Leon Smith said: "We were expecting a tough challenge whatever group we were drawn in. With Canada as 2022 champs, Finland made semis last year and Argentina won the title in 2016 and have good depth in their team. But we also have very good players and have proven time and again we can deliver as a team. So it’s a fairly even group on paper.

"Our team are really excited to be going back to Manchester where we had such amazing support and this makes a massive difference when it comes to getting GB over the line.”

Last year, the Brits defeated Australia, Switzerland and France to finish top of Group B but eventually lost out in the quarter-finals to Serbia. The Lexus GB Davis Cup team are one of two wild card teams to gain automatic qualification for the Finals Group Stage.

Canada were crowned Davis Cup champions for the first time back in 2022 and come into this year's event as the third seeded nation. They reached the Final 8 again last season but narrowly lost to Finland 2-1 in the quarter-finals. The Canadian side defeated Korea Republic 3-1 in their qualifying tie earlier this year to secure a spot in the Finals.

Finland head to Manchester off the back of its best Davis Cup performance in 2023 after reaching the semi-finals for the first time. They beat former champions Croatia, USA and Canada en route to the semis, where they lost to Australia. Off the back of a 3-1 win over Portugal in their Qualifier, the Finnish side will be ones to watch again.

Four-time champions Argentina complete Group D having missed out on a place in the Finals last year. In February, they clinched a 3-2 victory over Kazakhstan to restablish themselves among the top sides in the world. Argentina and Great Britain last faced each other in the semi-finals back in 2016 where the South Americans won 3-2 in Glasgow.

More information about tickets will be available soon.
