After an extremely successful debut for the ATP Cup, the ball is on the ITF court to equal the success with its new Davis Cup format.

The tournament’s organization faced some criticism following last year’s Davis Cup Finals.

While talks about a possible merger are still going, the fact is that we are going to have 12 teams in action this weekend.

The six winners will then secure a spot in the November Davis Cup Finals.

All 12 best-of-five series will take place on March 6 and 7.

1. Croatia vs India

Arguably the most one-sided matchup taking place this week, top seed Croatia takes on India.

Playing at home in Zagreb, the 2018 Davis Cup champions will have the resurging Marin Cilic back following his absence from last year’s Finals.

With a star-studded roster featuring Cilic, Borna Coric and doubles specialists Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic, Croatia should score an easy win.

The Croatian nationals should triumph on all three rubbers.

Prediction: Croatia 3-0.

2. Hungary vs Belgium

Number 2 seed Belgium will definitely miss the team’s Davis Cup veterans David Goffin and Steve Darcis.

Goffin is naturally Belgium’s ace, while Darcis has been a mainstay on the roster and always delivered some clutch wins for the two-time runner-ups.

Hungary is led by an in-form Marton Fucscovics, along with veteran Attila Balasz, who is coming off a strong run in South America.

Holding the home-court advantage, Hungary has everything in its favor to pull off the upset.

Prediction: Hungary 3-1.

3. Colombia vs Argentina

Number 3 seed Argentina also suffered a massive blow with its top 2 players, Diego Schwartzman and Guido Pella, withdrawing from the competition.

It should be a much closer series than it seemed at first.

Colombia will have the edge in doubles, led by the world number 1 pairing of Roberto Farah and Juan Sebastian Cabal.

While Colombia has the home advantage, Argentina still has a slight edge over their regional rivals.

Prediction: Argentina 3-2.

4. USA vs Uzbekistan

The US team will be one to watch in November.

Rising stars Taylor Fitz and Tommy Paul are joined by the in-form Reilly Opelka for the singles matches.

The legendary Bryan brothers will lead the charge in doubles.

Uzbekistan will have a hard time, as the team led by ATP Tour veteran Dennis Istomin is arguably one of the weakest in the group.

Playing at home, the American team should have an easy path to the Finals.

Prediction: USA 3-0.

5. Australia vs Brazil

In another heavily one-sided matchup, Team Australia should have little trouble advancing.

While the team’s top 2 players, Nick Kyrgios and Alex De Minaur, have been dealing with lingering injuries, Australia still has a significant advantage.

The Brazilian roster has some promising young players but consists mostly of clay specialists.

Brazil is also missing its top players, as two-time major champions Marcelo Mello and Bruno Soares have withdrawn from the competition.

Drawn as the home team and having picked the hard surface, Australia should have a clear path to the Finals.

Prediction: Australia 3-0.

6. Italy vs South Korea

Italy will be missing Matteo Berrettini, who remains out with an abdominal injury.

The team still has its number 2, Fabio Fognini, who will be joined by Gianluca Mager, coming off an impressive showing at the Rio Open.

Italy also holds the home advantage and has naturally chosen to play the best-of-five on clay.

The surface suits the team really well and should give the Italian nationals a much easier matchup against South Korea.

Prediction: Italy 3-0.

7. Germany vs Belarus

888Sport NJ-715+425

While Belarus could produce an upset, Germany still has a slight edge.

This matchup will pitch an experienced German team, led by veterans Jan-Lennard Struff and Philipp Kohlschreiber, against a young Belarus roster.

The series has a good chance of going the distance, but Germany’s experience and home-court advantage should decide this one.

Prediction: Germany 3-2.

8. Kazakhstan vs the Netherlands

A rematch from the 2019 Davis Cup Finals, the result will likely be the same.

Kazakhstan holds the home-court advantage and also has a slightly better group of players.

Both teams have a mix of young and experienced players, but the Kazakh nationals will likely deny the Netherlands once again.

Prediction: Kazakhstan 3-1.

9. Slovakia vs the Czech Republic

888Sport NJ-150+118

Perhaps the closest matchup this weekend, Czech Republic and Slovakia have evenly-matched rosters.

Drawn as the home team, Slovakia has a key advantage and naturally picked clay as the surface.

This is very likely going to be the deciding factor, as the outcome on the hard surface would swing the series in the Czech Republic’s favor.

Prediction: Slovakia 3-2.

10. Austria vs Uruguay

While Dominic Thiem’s absence will definitely be felt, Austria still has the edge.

Picking the hard surface was also a great move by the home team, which leaves Uruguay’s clay specialists at a disadvantage.

The experienced Uruguayan nationals could take one rubber from the young Austrians, but the home team still has the edge overall.

Prediction: Austria 3-1.

11. Japan vs Ecuador

888Sport NJ-5000+1400

Japan had a fairly easy draw in Ecuador.

The Japanese team will have the home-court advantage as well and has a much stronger group of players.

Ecuador has virtually zero chances, and the situation only becomes worse on the hard surface.

Prediction: Japan 3-0.

12. Sweden vs Chile

888Sport NJ-435+300

Chile looked like the early favorite, but things have significantly changed.

Already missing its number 2 player, Nicolas Jarry, the young Chilean team suffered a heavy blow following Cristian Garin’s withdrawal.

Sweden holds a key home-court advantage, and with Chile missing its top 2 players, should have a significant edge over their opponents.

Prediction: Sweden 3-1.
