Germany topped Group C after winning all three ties in Hamburg in September and it was a memorable week for Jan-Lennard Struff as well as the doubles duo of Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz.
Every tie went the same way: Struff put his side 1-0 up and Krawietz and Puetz clinched the decisive doubles. Even without Alexander Zverev, who is still out with injury, Michael Kohlmann's men are a force to be reckoned with.
The Germans face Canada in the quarter-finals after Frank Dancevic’s side showed they could be ones to watch after defeating Spain in a dramatic encounter at the Pabellon Fuente de San Luis in Valencia.
Felix Auger-Aliassime and Vasek Pospisil combined to great effect, with the former showing why he has been as high as world No.8. And with world No.19 Denis Shapovalov confirmed on the team, this is shaping up to be a thrilling tie.
