The Czech team has a long tennis history and after their absence from the Davis Cup by Rakuten Madrid Finals 2019, they made it through the Qualifiers this time round and we will see them in action in Group C. There they will be joined in the fight for a place in the quarter-finals by two other famous tennis nations: France and Great Britain.
