The Finals, formerly known as World Group, was the highest level of Davis Cup competition in 2021. It was held on indoor hard courts at three venues in Innsbruck, Austria, Madrid, Spain and Turin, Italy. The 2020 edition was originally scheduled to take place from 23 until 29 November 2020. However, on 26 June 2020, ITF announced that 2020 Finals would take place from 22 until 28 November 2021 due to coronavirus pandemic and be named 2021 Davis Cup Finals.[1] On 18 January 2021, ITF announced that the Finals would be expanded over 11 days, from 25 November to 5 December 2021.[2] The ties were contested in a best-of-three rubbers format and played on one day. There were two singles followed by a doubles.[3] Spain were the defending champions, but were eliminated in the round robin stage. The Russian Tennis Federation won the title, defeating Croatia in the final. Andrey Rublev was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament after going 6-1 in both singles and doubles.[4][5]

Participating teams

18 nations take part in the Finals.[6] The qualification was as follows:

  • 4 semifinalists of the previous edition
  • 2 wild card teams (announced by ITF on 23 November 2019 as France and Serbia)[7]
  • 12 winners of the Qualifying Round, in March 2020
