With both Medevedev and Rublev winning their singles matches in 2 sets  they won the Davis cup - the first  Russians to win the trophy since 2006.

There are three  major team events on the AIP Agenda each year  namely -

*     the Tennis World Cup played in January each year in Australia; played  on a Nations basis\

*     the Laver Cup  representing players from Europe playing against players from the rest of the world 

*     the Davis Cup  played on a nations basis,

In 2021 Russia using in the main Medvedev and Rublev won both the two national tournaments - winning most of their  single matches - with Rublev also playing in the doubles  when needed.    In the Laver Cup case  the team representatives can play as many as three matches  - normally one singles match and to doubles matches,   In the 2021 series the European tram won 14 of the 15 matches played - the one lost match was a doubles match.   The only player who played in three matches and won all three in 2021 was Andrey Rublev.

The Tennis World Cup this year starts on 1 January 2022  and last through to the start of the Aussie Open.    The players will have to proof they are vaccinated  and tested negative before admission to Australia by not later than 17 December 2021 if they intent                                                              to play in the World Cup and the subsequent  Aussie Open.  In  the case of the latter series the latest admission date will be 3 January 2022.   The dates mentioned are set to allow for 14 days isolation in Australia.   

Two of the leading players - Djokovic and  Tsitsipas - have thus far refused to be vaccinated.  It is likely that the latter would accept vaccination - but the situation of  Djokovic is unclear.   Chances are he will not go to Australia for the mentioned tournaments because of  the above-mentioned  Australian Government requirements.

Both Djokovic and Tsitsipas were entered in the Serbian and Greek World Cup teams - but  Djokovic opted out of participation.   


Bearing in mind the  vaccination requirement of the Aussie Government  as well as isolation required Djokovic will have to be in Australia by   3 January 2022  if he intends to play in the Aussie Open.     It seems unlikely that he would play - he already opted out of the Abu Dhabi tournament and now the WC Tournament.   If he does not participate in  Melbourne he will be out of the  Top ranking - so we will have to wait and see whether he does turn up.   In that case the seedings in the Aussie open will be as follows:-

1    Medvedev
2    Zverev
3    Tsitsipas
4    Rublev

If  Djokovic does play the rankings will all move down 1 position.
