Kimmer Coppejans was Belgium’s singles star in Uberlandia as they beat Brazil to qualify for the 2019 Finals, winning both his singles rubbers in straight sets. Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen got the job done in the doubles, in the absence of David Goffin and Steve Darcis, the most consistent Belgian players in Davis Cup in recent years.
They will be looking for some revenge in Madrid – in 2018 they sought to reach their third semi-final in four years, but were trounced 4-0 by 32-time Davis Cup champions the USA.
