There will be a last minute change in the Spanish Davis Cup Finals team as Roberto Bautista has been dropped at the last minute.
Some abdominal discomfort has had to put Pepe Vendrell’s pupil out of the game. The tennis player who will end the season becomes a sensitive loss for Sergi Bruguera’s men in the fight for the difficult defense for the salad bowl. In 2019 Roberto was a fundamental player in the individual fight like Rafa Nadal, but for this year it will be necessary to completely change the two players who dispute those first two points.
Albert Ramos Vinolas is the chosen one
Therefore, facing November 26 in the first game against Ecuador, the place of Roberto Bautista will be occupied by Albert Ramos Vinolas who arrives as the fifth player. He will join the training sessions, this being his fifth nomination to be able to compete in this competition. Their debut was in 2013 where they visited Canada. In the first game he fell to Milos Raonic and in the second he played, with the tie resolved, he defeated Frank Dancevic. In 2017 he played against Novak Djokovic in the duel against Serbia where they fell 4-1 although later in another minor clash he beat Nenad Zimonjic. In 2018, however, he won all three games he played. Against Great Britain he got two of the three points and in the loss to France, he beat Richard Gasquet.
At first he arrives as a replacement tennis player in Bruguera’s rotation since a priori Pablo Carreño and Carlos Alcaraz will be chosen to be able to compete individually with Marcel Granollers and Feliciano López, being the players who will compete in the doubles discipline.
