"I think they were a little quick to suspend Davis."

Raúl Viver, captain of the Ecuador team, appreciated the suspension this season of the Davis Cup finals in Madrid. "We are in June and it was in November ...".


Ecuadorian tennis players have been affected with the postponement of the Davis Cup finals from November 2020 to November 2021, as stated this Friday by Raúl Viver, team captain. "The players are quite beaten by this news, but we will seek to see the positive things. I think they rushed a little, we are just finishing June and the tournament was in November," Viver told Efe.

In his opinion, he would have preferred the Davis Cup to be played "without an audience", as the Roland Garros are projected in September and the United States Open in August. Among "the positive things" of the postponement of the finals in Madrid, the captain of the Ecuadorian team said that his players can find more time to prepare and arrive at a faster pace.

Predicted at the Caja Mágica in Madrid between November 23 and 29, the Davis Cup finals today were rescheduled from November 22, 2021. Eighteen teams will play the Final Phase: Spain, as the 2019 champion; Canada, as runner-up; Russia and Great Britain as semifinalists; as well as France and Serbia, which have received an invitation from the organization.

And twelve other countries were classified through the 'playoffs': Croatia, the United States, Germany, Italy, Australia, Kazakhstan, Sweden, Austria, the Czech Republic, Colombia, Hungary and Ecuador. Viver said that the Ecuadorian tennis players, who have been training for two weeks in specially conditioned fields, have been waiting to play local tournaments. "Emilio Gómez, Diego Hidalgo and Gonzalo Escobar first began training in private fields, in the case of Roberto Quiroz he is recovering after an operation, while Cayetano March is in Spain without being able to train," he explained.
