The iconic punchbowl trophy hasn’t been seen in Russia since the days of Nikolay Davydenko and Marat Safin, but they’re going to take some stopping with world No. 2 Medvedev and no. 5 Andrey Rublev leading the team.

Djokovic’s Serbia, Jannik Sinner’s Italy, and Cameron Norrie’s Great Britain are shaping up as three outside bets for glory, though Canada, Germany and reigning champions Spain, much-fancied in the early stages, have found themselves hamstrung by injuries and withdrawals.

But one or two brilliant individuals can only get you so far, and Colombia, Croatia and France, while lacking some of the stardust of the other nations, boast some of the finest doubles specialists in the world. And despite the absence of Rafael Nadal, Spain can call on a deeper pool of talent than anyone else.

Who will emerge victorious from the World Cup of tennis? Here’s how you can live stream Davis Cup Finals 2021 tennis from wherever you are in the world.


How to watch a Davis Cup Finals live stream from outside your country

If you’re abroad during the Davis Cup Finals, you’ll likely find you’re unable to access your domestic tennis coverage like you would at home. This isn’t necessarily cause for alarm, but rather the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to certain parts of the world.

Fortunately, there’s a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you swerve around these digital borders, thereby allowing you to globe trot and still access your preferred tennis live stream. It’s a completely legal workaround, very affordable, and super easy to use – allow us to explain more.
