The coronavirus outbreak has halted the ATP and WTA Tours and Wimbledon was cancelled for the first time since World War II.

India had lost 1-3 to Croatia in the Davis Cup Qualifiers while Finland had beaten Mexico 3-2 in World Group Play-Offs.

It was an easy draw for India as none of the singles players of Finland feature in the top-100. Emil Ruusuvuori, ranked 101, is the team's best player while others are not even in the top-400.
