For athletes from many countries, the Davis Cup is a significant and always highly memorable event during a competitive season. Despite the many modifications in the format over the last few years, the competition has maintained some characteristics that have marked its international appeal: among them is undoubtedly the spirit and atmosphere that filled the four venues.
The first stages will be held in a variety of locations. Despite the fact that the traditional formula was lost, with matches being best of five sets and spread out over several days, the battle stayed alive and the unexpected results were plentiful, in addition to the three matches' overall time being relatively consistent (exceeded 8 hours in some cases).
The event between the different countries did not have a very high-level seating at the start line, but it did not have a very low-level seating either: the heavy absences of tennis players in the top 20 were felt, even if their substitutes made things more unexpected and sometimes compelling.
Some talents have been discovered, and the situations have enabled almost impossible successes in other contexts: one of the most striking examples is the victory of Croatian Borna Gojo (ATP number 279), who defeated the blue Lorenzo Sonego in a game that proved crucial for his country's passage through the turn against the host Italy.
A really fascinating fact stands out on the Davis Cup 2021 edition for everybody to see. The eight teams in the quarter-finals are all from Europe, including Kazakhstan and Russia, which compete in qualifiers against Western nations.
Countries like the US, Australia, and Argentina. The 'Rest of the World' does not appear in the final stages of the team event for the first time in the competition's history.
An aspect that certifies Europe's clear supremacy at this time may be seen (if we want) in the Laver Cup "Europe vs. World" comparison. In terms of 2022, there are already reports that Kosmos may make some changes, the intention is to expand the borders to Asia, specifically the Middle East.
