Could Kyle Edmund become the 6th player to make his Davis Cup debut in the final?

Only five players have made their Davis Cup debut in the final but could Kyle Edmund become the sixth? The big question is who are the five players?

I’ve done a bit of research and the five players are Jimmy Arias, Richard Fromberg, Pete Sampras, Paul-Henri Mathieu who all featured in the singles and Feliciano Lopez back in 2003 who featured in the doubles. All five of these players have something in common, they all lost their matches.

Now, John McEnroe and Henri Leconte both made their Davis Cup singles debut in the final despite playing in previous rounds in the doubles so does it count? Henri Leconte lost his match but John McEnroe won his in 1978 when the USA played Great Britain and won 4-1 with John defeating John Lloyd 6-1 6-2 6-2.

Kyle is playing some good tennis right now and made the final of a clay event in Buenos Aires so could he realistically be in Belgium at the end of the month?
