Bengaluru. The Indian Davis Cup team is set to take on Sweden in a thrilling Davis Cup World Group I encounter in September, the draw was announced on Thursday. Buoyed by their recent 4-0 win over Pakistan in the World Group I playoffs, the Indian team is set to face Sweden, aiming to get their first win against their Scandinavian counterparts.

India and Sweden have faced each other five times in the Davis Cup and Sweden has emerged victorious every time. This included a 0–5 defeat in the 1987 Davis Cup final, which was India’s last appearance in the final of this prestigious tournament. India’s last encounter with Sweden was in 2005 when they hosted the Swedish team in Delhi, but they ultimately lost 1-3.

However, with the current Swedish lineup lacking formidable singles players, the Indian contingent is getting a chance to turn the tide in its favour. Led by the talented Rohit Rajpal, India aim to exploit Sweden’s perceived weaknesses and emerge victorious.

Sweden, led by the talented Elias Ymer and his brother Mikael, are posing a tough challenge for the Indian team. However, India have a strong lineup of doubles players led by world number one Rohan Bopanna, along with Yuki Bhambri (60), N. Sriram Balaji (78), Vijay Sundar Prashant (80) and Anirudh Chandrashekhar (90) were ranked in the top 100 in the world.
