    Serbia lost to Russia in the quarterfinals, while France was eliminated in the group stage.

    The new-look 18-team finals — reduced to one week in one city and three matches per tie — is the result of a 25-year partnership between the ITF and Kosmos, an investment group co-founded by Barcelona star Gerard Piqué.
