France vs Spain Davis Cup semifinal recap

One year after the semi-final against Serbia, deprived of Djokovic, France hosts Spain … deprived of Nadal, injured. Nadal’s absence changes everything and the tie loses a lot of its interest. The French are now the clear favorites to reach the Davis Cup final for the second year in a row, the third time in five years. A feat that hides the catastrophic results of the French players in Grand Slams this year and somehow confirms the supporters of the Davis Cup reform.

Un an après la demie-finale contre la Serbie privée de Djokovic, la France reçoit l’Espagne … privée de Nadal, blessé au genou. Le numéro un mondial absent, cette rencontre perd beaucoup de son intérêt et les Français sont hyper favoris pour atteindre la finale pour la 2ème année consécutive, la 3ème fois en 5 ans. Un exploit qui masque les résultats catastrophiques des Français en Grand Chelem cette année et conforte les partisans de la réforme de la Coupe Davis.
Le fan club officiel de l’équipe de France a troqué samedi le maillot bleu pour un maillot noir, en signe de deuil et d’opposition au nouveau format. Qu’en pensez-vous? Etes vous pour ou contre ce changement?

Here’s the recap of my Davis Cup weekend:
