TennisSection previews the 2021 Davis Cup Finals as Pablo Carreno Busta takes on Emilio Gomez in the round robin on Friday, November 26th, 2021.
Will Pablo Carreno Busta get the win? Will Emilio Gomez pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a top Spanish player aiming to get his team off to a good start. Who will grab the first win for their country at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals?
Pablo Carreno Busta hasn’t had the best season, struggling to get too deep into many tournaments. However, he is ranked where he is for a reason, and on top of all his experience and the level of play that we know he can produce, it’s hard to imagine him doing anything but winning against Emilio Gomez in a relatively straightforward manner. They’re playing on very fast courts, and while PCB doesn’t love those conditions Gomez doesn’t love them either. So simply due to level of play and experience, I expect PCB to easily plow through Gomez as he aims to help get Spain off to a great start here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
Emilio Gomez has been playing many challengers, struggling to get into main draw events. He has much less experience and a much lower ranking, so it will be incredibly tough for him to get past Pablo Carreno Busta. Gomez will have to hope PCB is off his game, which is possible on an indoor hard court as PCB doesn’t like these kinds of conditions either. However, he has shown that he has the capabilities of playing well on quicker surfaces in the past, and Gomez has far too little match play or the level to take on PCB even if he’s a little off his game. I ultimately think Busta will get the swift win to push Spain off to a great start here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
Pablo Carreno Busta and Emilio Gomez have met once before, with Pablo Carreno Busta leading the head to head 1-0. Their one meeting came this year at Indian Wells. Carreno Busta won rather easily, 6-4 6-1. The conditions there were incredibly slow, but it was a hard court, and the way in which PCB won shows the vast difference between the two. I expect a similar result to come off the racquet of PCB as he aims to help lead Spain to a great start here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
