Clavet: “We’d want Rafael Nadal vs. Novak Djokovic in the Davis Cup.”
highest-ranked player on the other, Nadal and Djokovic, the two highest-rated players on their respective teams, cannot face off in a Davis Cup final.
In an interview with Marca, Clavet commented, “Honestly, it’s difficult. We all want a Nadal–Djokovic.

Given that Carlos Alcaraz, rated fifth in the world, is the second-best Spanish player, there is a good chance that Murcian and Novak Djokovic will face off in the Davis Cup Finals.
Carlitos Alcaraz is the tennis world’s biggest star, and we would love to have him, stated Clavet. Spain won the inaugural Davis Cup Finals, but was unable to retain its crown the following year because it was simply too impossible to replace Nadal and Alcaraz.
The Majorcan withdrew from the semi-final after suffering an abdominal ailment at Wimbledon in order to avoid missing the remainder of the season. “I can’t imagine winning two games, and I don’t want to walk out and not be competitive enough,” remarked Rafael Nadal following a grueling triumph against Taylor Fritz in the quarterfinals.
“Due to my foot injury a few weeks ago, I experienced a significant change in my career. Happiness is more significant than any other title. I cannot play that game at risk and miss two or three months of competition. It’s quite difficult and I’m very sad.” However, this year, with both Nadal and Alcaraz eligible, Spain is unquestionably a contender to win the Davis Cup.
