Reigning champion Canada, as well as Sweden and Chile, will be Italy's opponents in the 2023 Davis Cup Finals, scheduled at the Unipol Arena in Bologna from 12 to 17 September next.
The group stage draw took place in Malaga, venue for the event's finals, from 21 to 26 November, which features knockout matches for the quarter- and semi-finals.
The challenges of the four groups - all scheduled from 12 to 17 September - will be hosted by four different cities.
In addition to Bologna, venue for group A matches, the others are the British Manchester (group B, made up of Australia, Great Britain, France and Switzerland), the Spanish Valencia (group C, with Spain, Serbia, the Czech Republic and Korea South) and a Croatian city to be defined (group D, with Croatia, the Netherlands, the United States and Finland).
At the end of the matches in mid-September, the first two teams in each group will qualify for the knockout phase: the relative table is compiled by drawing the winner of each group in the quarter-finals with a runner-up from the other groups.
"Every time you take the field for the nation, for the team, it's special - says Jannik Sinner in the promo video that preceded the draw -. It's nice to be part of the group, we are very cohesive. And it's special to be part of it too. that's why playing at home, in front of our fans, is incredible.
We need our fans. With their help, and with our spirit, we will try to qualify for the Final Eight."
