TENNIS NEWS - ITF President David Haggerty spoke about the new Davis Cup format that will be introduced next year. In February 2019, teams will face each other in the qualifying round for the final stage that will take place in late November.
Speaking to Daily Mail, Haggerty made an interesting comparison between Davis Cup and Brexit, referring to the criticism that both events have been hit by: 'Not many things in life are 100 per cent in terms of people getting behind any one decision.
But if you’re passionate about it you understand that people may be passionate about it in the exact opposite way. Lest I say Brexit. Passion is what our sport’s about and I think that’s really what Davis Cup stands for so I understand the way the crowds feel, the emotion that’s behind it.
