This is the first time Korean men’s tennis has reached the Davis Cup round of 16 for two consecutive years.
If Spain had beaten Serbia on Sunday, the Koreans would have had a realistic hope of advancing to the quarterfinals if they won the Korea-Spain match on Sunday, but Serbia won and joined the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals.
