On the draw of Thursday, he decided to make the first separate game in the world ranking with 371, the 19-year-old Piros with Kohlschreiber from the 32-place, who was 16 years older than he. Alexander Zverev, ATP world champion last year, third in the rankings, will compete against Péter Nagy, who is currently not on the world rankings, during the second meeting.

On Saturday-afternoon, Jan-Lennard Struff (51) and Tim Pütz (350) will face the match with Péter Nagy and Gábor Borsos (552), then Zverev Piros and Kohlschreiber will meet in the Fatort Arena with five thousand seats.

Michael Kohlmann, captain of the German national team, can still count on Peter Gojowczyk (62), while on the other hand Gábor Köves made it difficult for Márton Fucsovics (47) to play the game with his Hungarian ally Máté Valkusz (314 ) wrestle with mononucleosis. In their absence, the leader Attila Balázs (258), who has been suffering from leg injuries for months, and the novice Dávid Szintai (-) mentioned the fight.

Following the Davis Cup reform this year, the 12 qualifying matches are eligible to participate in the 18-man Madrid final in November.

The Hungarian and German ensembles have met five times since 1936 and the Germans lead 3-2. The last fight took place in Budapest in 1978, after which the Hungarian team formed by Balázs Taróczy and Péter Szőke defeated the NCO 3-2.
