Rafael Nadal - US Open destroyed me

Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray headine star-studded Davis Cup line-up

The revamped Davis Cup has succeeded in attracting the star names, wit Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Andy Murray all being named in the line-ups.

The Davis Cup, backed by new investors, is changing to a different format this season with it all taking part inside a week in November in Madrid.

Questions were raised over whether that would appeal to the biggest names, with Alexander Zverev notably outspoken against the concept.

Zverev, true to his word, will not be playing, and neither will Roger Federer, but arguably only due to Switzerland’s failure to qualify.

However, there will certainly be no shortage of star quality on display, and you can see the full list of confirmed names below.
