Davis-cup Germany vs Dominican Republic

The Caribbean minnows were handed a home tie against the Germans in Tuesday’s play-off draw in London.

They have surprisingly progressed to the play-off stage largely thanks to their top-50-ranked player Victor Estrella Burgos. Playing in his 42nd Davis Cup tie, he won three points in the nation’s 3-2 victory over Ecuador at the weekend.

Now they have a shot at the game’s elite and Estrella Burgos will again be their key man when they face the likes of Philipp Kohlschreiber in September.
