One of the most anticipated duels of the ATP Cup is going to be played … Although by little. Spain suffered a lot against Belgium, but won and went to the semifinals to face the host team, Australia, which has Kyrgios, the bad boy on the circuit with a great history of disagreements with Nadal (here the last tone output of the aussie). The tie is played on Saturday, January 11 at 08:30, and can be seen on television by Teledeporte. Nadal and Kyrgios will not face each other in the individual duel, since the Australian is number two in their country. Therefore, they will open the duel Kyrgios against Bautista and then Rafa would meet them with the young man of Spanish origin Alex de Miñaur. The doubles, if necessary, would measure Nadal and Carreño against Kyrgios and De Miñaur.
Great emotions also await in the other semifinal (early Friday through Saturday, at 1:00 a.m.). Serbia has number two in the world, Djokovic, and Lajovic, while Russia has a great team with Khachanov and Medevedev.
