Billie Jean King Cup: Italy’s opponents.

France and Germany will be Italy’s opponents in the qualifying round of the Billie Jean King Cup Finals, which are scheduled for Nov. 7-12 in Seville. Tathiana Garbin’s Italian women’s team, which gained access to the decisive phase of the “Women’s Davis Cup” in April by winning 3-2 in the preliminary round at home to Slovakia, will be engaged in round D to advance to the knockout stage. The match format will include two singles and one doubles match.

Reigning champions Switzerland, on the other hand, were drawn in an iron group, Group A, with the Czech Republic and the United States. Easier is the task for finalist Australia, which will face Kazakhstan and Slovenia in Group B. Finally, the hosts Spain, five-time champions of the event, will be pitted against Canada and Poland’s world No. 1 Iga Swiatek in Group C.
