Great Britain outlasted Spain in the most interesting two-days long battle so far, winning the tie with final score 4-1. Paula Badosa has poured the hope into hearts of the Spanish team, surviving the enormous fight with Harriet Dart. Badosa was struggling with her serve, making 12 double faults in general, and as much as 7 only in first set, which she lost in a tie-break 6-8. Second set was no less tight, as Badosa managed to cross the line in another tie-break despite losing the opportunity to close it twice in her service games. The decider was one way traffic as Badosa clicked the gear with no concrete response from Dart, winning it 6-1 and making it 1-2 in a tie from Spanish perspective.
As it occured, it was a no-effect effort, while Albert Ramos Vinolas did not manage to upset Daniel Evans, who hold the pressure and gained a win in another three-setter with lots of twists and turns. The doubles match also ended up in favor of Brits, who win whole the group after defeating Australia in their first duel.
Poland crossed the line in their competition against Kazachstan winning it 4-1 as well. Hubert Hurkacz continued a run started really well by yesterday's opening win of Iga Swiatek, as he defeated Alexander Bublik. The Pole clinched the first set in really tight tie-break, which was needed after no breaks in all the 12 games, and gained the advantage winning it 10-8. Second set has started from the early break from Bublik, who won the first game just after tie-break and held his serve to the end of a set. The third was decided also by just the one break, but this time it was "Hubi", who made it, increasing the lead of Poles against their opponents in general. The third and deciding win was gained by Magda Linette, who gave away just three games for Zhibek Kulambayeva. Tie was ended with some fun, as Hurkacz has paired himself with Iga Swiatek for the doubles match, which looked a little like an exhibition, won by the Poles as well.
In other duels, Croatia gave no chance for Argentina defeating them 5-0. Bulgaria and Czech Republic won their matches against respectiely Belgium and Germany 3-2. Especially the match between Bulgaria and Belgium was the exciting one, as it was decided by the super tie-break in final mixed-doubles match. It has ended up with big upset, as Alexandar Lazarov and Izabella Szinikowa won it against strong Belgian pairing - Elise Mertens and David Goffin, with a score 10-6.
Having Casper Ruud in a tally was not enough for Norway, as his win 6-3 6-2 against Tiago Monteiro was the only one with 4 other matches lost against Brasil.
