• ITF hopes World Cup of Tennis Finals will feature top players
• ‘This is a complete gamechanger for the ITF and for tennis’
The Davis Cup is set to be transformed into an 18-nation World Cup-style tournament under new proposals put forward by the International Tennis Federation.
It is hoped the new event, named the World Cup of Tennis Finals, will feature the game’s leading international stars and be played in one location over seven days at the end of each season. It would involve a round-robin stage, with the top eight teams moving forward to knockout rounds.
