The team

Belgium returns to the Davis Cup by Rakuten Finals with David Goffin, the undisputed leader of the Belgian team.

His return to the team after injury was expected. The Belgian No.1 did not know how his body would respond, even less so when he was forced to take the court because his partner Joran Vliegen, one of the best doubles players, tested positive for Covid-19 and was unable to play. Despite suffering his fourth defeat in as many Davis Cup doubles matches, he came back out to play the next point and gave his partner Zizou Bergs the chance to seal the tie.

At the Davis Cup by Rakuten Madrid Finals 2019, Belgium did not reach the Knockout Stage.
