Teenage star Carlos Alcaraz gets nod for Spanish Davis Cup team | Tennis News


MADRID: Carlos Alcaraz’s rapid ascent in men’s tennis this year received further recognition on Monday being named in 2019 Davis Cup champions Spain’s team for this year’s competition.
The 18-year-old, ranked 42 in the world, became the youngest US Open men’s quarter-finalist in 58 years in September but a thigh injury brought his run to an end.
Alcaraz was selected by captain Sergi Bruguera alongside Pablo Carreno, Roberto Bautista Agut — both ranked in the world’s top 20 — the evergreen 40-year-old Feliciano Lopez and Marcel Granollers.
The Spanish are without former world number one Rafael Nadal who brought the curtain down on his truncated season in August due to a foot injury.
The Davis Cup finals bringing together 18 countries run from November 25 to December 5 and takes place in Madrid, the Austrian city of Innsbruck and Turin in Italy.
