After the year 2000 Davis cup Final, held in Barcelona, and which Spain won against Australia, this is the second time, the final will be celebrated in Barcelona.
The Davis Cup Final by BNP Paribas Final will be between Spain and the Czech Republic and the dates are from December 4 to 6 at the Palau Sant Jordi, the same scenery as 9 years ago.
The Spanish Tennis Federation decided on Barcelona a few days ago. Valencia was another option. One important issue could have been, that many of the Spanish tennis players have played and trained in clubs in or close to the city, apart from being a sport very well known and practiced in Barcelona, as well as tennis tournaments.
In the year 2000 Spain won its first title with a 3:1 win against Australia, forming part of the Spanish team the current captain Albert Costa, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Alex Corretja and Juan Manuel Balcells.
Spain has reached this year´s final after victories against Serbia, Germany and Israel, whereas the Czech Republic beated France, Argentina and Croatia.
