Albert Ramos gave the final point for the national team of Spain to move forward on the Davis Cup.
This time, to access the rooms of the World Group, where from April 6 to 8, the German league with the brothers Mischa and Alexander Zverev waits for the Spanish selection.
Ramos, the personal favourite of the new captain Sergi Bruguera, was able to obtain the victory on his favour despite the ups and downs during the game by taking advantage at the key moment that took place during the outcome of the third set.
This was decided by a tiebreaker meaning the beginning of the end of the match, which ended with a 7-6 (4), 2-6, 7-6 (4) and 6-2 in favour of the Spanish player.
This way the Spanish selection manages to move forward on the board of participants leaving the stakes this way:
- Italy vs. France
- Spain vs. Germany
- Croatia vs. Kazakhstan
- United States vs. Belgium
The eliminatory against Germany is expected to be tough, especially with Alexander Zverev, the 5th of the world as the head of their team. But, with good strategy and spirit, the Spanish team is ready to open its way directly to the podium this year.
