Valencia, 19 Feb 2018Spain will host its Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group quarterfinal tie with Germany on outdoor clay at the iconic Plaza de Toros de Valencia on 6-8 April.

The 10,600-seater venue – a bullring built in the 1850s – will play host to a Davis Cup tie for the first time, with Valencia set to host Davis Cup for the first time since 2003, when Spain defeated Croatia 5-0 in the World Group quarterfinals, and the fifth time overall.

As well as in 2003, Valencia also hosted Davis Cup ties in 1968, 1969 and 1980.

The upcoming quarterfinal clash will be the 17th meeting between Spain and Germany in Davis Cup – but the first since 2014.

Germany won their last contest in the World Group first round in Frankfurt four years ago, and will hope for a repeat performance as they target a place in the semifinals for the first time in 11 years.

Despite winning five Davis Cup titles since 2000, Spain has not reached the semifinals since 2012, when they went on to finish runner-up to Czech Republic.
