Argentina was selected by the Davis Cup Steering Committee as one of the two countries to receive wild cards to progress directly to the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid in 2019, and therefore will not need to dispute the Qualifiers scheduled to take place in February.
Juan Martin del Potro is, without a doubt, Argentina's most distinguished tennis player today, although in the Argentine contingent other players also stand out, such as Schwartzman, with Argentina having finished 2018 with six players in the world top 100.
