Korean men’s tennis ultimately failed to advance to the quarterfinals메이저놀이터 of the Davis Cup Finals.
On the 15th (local time), Serbia defeated Spain 3-0 in the Group C match of the 2023 Davis Cup Finals group stage held in Valencia, Spain.
Djokovic, who won the last major championship of the season at the US Open last week, appeared in the second singles and defeated Spain’s Alejandro Davidovic Fokina (25th) 2-0.
As a result, first and second places in Group C were taken by Serbia and the Czech Republic (two wins). Korea and Spain were eliminated with two losses.
The Davis Cup Finals is a ‘Tennis World Cup’ in which the world’s round of 16 is divided into four groups, and Korea advanced to the world’s round of 16 for the second year in a row, following last year.
In the first game, Korea lost 0-3 to Serbia without Novak Djokovic (No. 1), and also lost to the Czech Republic with a scoreless set, so the chances of advancing to the quarterfinals were slim.
If Spain had defeated Serbia that day, there was still a glimmer of hope that Korea would win the Korea-Spain match to be held on the 17th. However, Serbia won the match and their dream of advancing to the quarterfinals was dashed.
Korea must now pass the finals again to return to the Davis Cup Finals the following year.
