Itf Confident 3 Billion Davis Cup Revamp Will Secure Tennis Future

LONDON – The International Tennis Federation has hit back at accusations that there has been a lack of transparency about the proposed revamp of the Davis Cup and is confident the new plans will deliver long-term benefits to players, nations and sponsors.

Tennis Australia had said in a strongly worded letter seen by Reuters that it planned to “vote against the proposed amendments” at the ITF’s Aug. 13-16 AGM in Orlando, Florida since the reform process has been “far from transparent”.

Tennis Europe, a regional governing body representing 50 member nations, also said it opposed the ITF’s plans to transform the 118-year-old Davis Cup into an 18-team, one-week season finale that is due to be held in November 2019.
