The Polish national team will play the second and final match in the group stage of the Federation Cup on the night of Sunday to Monday (December 31/January 1). The opponent will be Spain, and this clash will determine who will qualify for the quarter-finals.

The competition in the group stage of the 2024 Federation Cup is coming to an end, and the Polish national team, after beating Brazil 3-0, will face Spain. Our competitors also beat the South American team, but with a score of only 2:1. Therefore, they are in a worse position.

Let us remind you that the winner of the group guarantees qualification to the quarter-finals. In addition, the group will be completed by the two group runners-up from Perth and Sydney. Therefore, defeating Poland or Spain would not eliminate their chance of playing in the knockout stage, but it would put them in a state of great uncertainty.

The Whites and Reds will be the favorites in this competition. Hubert Hurkacz and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will be the first to appear in court. It must be noted that although the Pole is ranked higher, he has lost three times in five direct confrontations. Their last confrontation was at Wimbledon in 2022, when the Spaniard won. This player also has a better record on hard courts (2-1), where this matchup will take place.

If Hurkacz wins, Iga Świątek will be able to put an “i” in this duel. She will face Sarah Sorribes, whom she defeated twice, in the second half of 2023. This was their only direct clash. The top of the WTA world rankings should not have any major problems with a tennis player with a much lower ranking.

In the end, of course, there will be a mixed battle, where Hurkacz and Światek will play against Davidovich Fokina and Sorribes. On paper, it seems that only a defeat for our tennis player could see this contest decide the final outcome of the match.

The match between Poland and Spain starts on the night from Sunday to Monday (December 31/January 1) at 3:00. First we'll see Hurkacz in action, then I healed you, and finally mixed.
