Croatia are the defending champions and they have been pitted against Russia and tournament hosts Spain in Group B.
They have won the Davis Cup twice, in 2005 and in 2018, and they were runners-up in 2016.

"I am happy that I have been able to train my body to perform in Madrid because in the last six months, since Halle (Open), I have had a lot of health problems," Coric said on Glasistre.
"It will be a big challenge, it is a new format and we are not in the full squad, but it is the Davis Cup and anything can happen."
Meanwhile, USA remain the most decorated team in the history of the Davis Cup having won 32 titles.
They have been drawn against Canada and Italy in Group F and they will be hoping to go all the win and clinch their maiden title since 2007.
