The return to competition of Kei Nishikori, the Bryan brothers’ last Davis Cup appearance, the presence of Marin Cilic and Fabio Fognini... and 12 teams celebrating their progress to the Finals. Great stories await on 6–7 March. Don't miss them!

  • Croatia–India. The Davis Cup 2018 champions will be the favourites in Zagreb against India. The tie will also feature the appearance of doubles legend Leander Paes, who at 46 years old is the veteran of the 2020 Qualifiers.
  • Colombia–Argentina. On the clay courts of Bogotá, the 'cafeteros', with the world’s best doubles team of the moment, Juan Sebastián Cabal and Robert Farah, will be seeking to defeat Argentina for the first time in four clashes.
  • United States–Uzbekistan. Twins Bob and Mike Bryan, the best doubles pair in history, will retire at the end of this season, after the US Open. The duel with Uzbekistán will be the last chance to see them in action in one of their favourite competitions, the Davis Cup.
  • Australia–Brazil. Although they were originally listed as part of the team, due to injury, neither Nick Kyrgios nor Alex De Minaur are likely to be defending Australia's colours in Adelaide. Their absence will be a boost to a Brazil that features Felipe Meligeni, nephew of one of the legends of Rio de Janeiro tennis. Fernando Meligeni was a semi-finalist at Roland-Garros in 1999 and competed at the Atlanta 96 Olympic Games.
  • Italy–Republic of Korea. The Italians, headed by Fabio Fognini, are the undisputed favourites against a Republic of Korea led by Duckhee Lee, who debuted for the team in 2016. 
  • Germany–Belarus. Michael Kohlman, the German captain, returns with the same men who in the Davis Cup by Rakuten Madrid Finals 2019 fought to the very end for a place in the semi-finals, losing out eventually to Great Britain.
  • Kazakhstan–Netherlands. Will the Dutch be able to take the tennis fortress the Kazakhs have turned their capital, Nur-Sultan, into? The locals have put their confidence in Alexander Bublik and Mikhail Kukushkin to add their twelfth victory in 13 qualifiers played there.
  • Austria–Uruguay. Uruguay, with the contribution of brothers Pablo and Martín Cuevas, hope to follow in the 2019 footsteps of Chile by beating the Austrians, who are the favourites in Graz, even without their big star, Dominic Thiem.
  • Japan–Ecuador. Kei Nishikori returns to the Japanese team after a long time out with an elbow injury. He last competed for the team in the play-off in the World Group in September 2016. Unfortunately, local fans will only be able to watch him on television as the duel will be played behind closed doors in response to the current outbreak of coronavirus.
  • Sweden–Chile. The debut of Robin Soderling as captain and big expectations for the young Ymer brothers – the backbone of the Swedish team – are the main attractions of this duel. The clash seems to clearly favour the hosts although Chile hopes to repeat their success of 2019 by winning another Qualifier tie far from home.
