South Korea was also organized with Spain, Serbia and Canada in the Davis Cup group stage in September last year, but Djokovic did not participate at the time. Alcaras played in the match against Korea and beat Kwon Soon-woo (107th, Dangjin City Hall) 2-0 (6-4, 7-6). Last year, Korea lost 1-2 to Canada and Serbia, and lost 0-3 to Spain.
Including Kwon Soon-woo, Korea has set up the national team with Hong Sung-chan (204th, Sejong City Hall), Jung Yoon-sung (313th, Uijeongbu City Hall), Nam Ji-sung (123rd, Sejong City Hall), and Song Min-kyu (171st, KDB Development Bank). With Alcaras at the forefront, Spain included Alejandro Davydovich Pokina (23rd), Roberto Bautista Agut (37th), and Marcel Granoyers (16th in doubles).
Serbia will be joined by Djokovic and Laslo Jere (34th), Miomir Ketsmanovic (41st), Doosan Rayovitch (66th) and Hamad Medević (144th). The Czech Republic has registered Giza Rehetska (35th), Tomasi Mahachi (102nd), Yakup Mensik (192nd), and Adam Pavlasek (60th in doubles), which is also ranked higher than South Korea.
However, the Davis Cup in September will be held immediately after the end of the US Open, a major tournament, so depending on the appointment of players, Alkaras or Djokovic may not play in the match against Korea.
