The search for a new Spain Davis Cup captain is already under way after Sergi Bruguera stepped down from the role “by mutual consent”.

In a statement on its website, the Spanish tennis federation thanked the two-time former French Open champion for his work in the role, which began in 2017 and which saw him lead Spain to victory in 2019.

Rafael Nadal was instrumental in Spain’s triumph three years ago but both he and world No 1 Carlos Alcaraz were missing from this year’s event as the team were beaten in the quarter-finals. Spain have direct entry into the Davis Cup finals for 2023.

“The RFET sports management has already begun conversations with different candidates to fill the position of captain of the MAPFRE Davis Cup national team,” the statement said.
