– Davis Cup: Ties to be played over three sets as part of ITF reform

March 9, 2017

Andy Murray miss Britain’s first-round tie against Canada in February.

Davis Cup matches are very likely to be played over three sets in future – and ties could last just two days.

The International Tennis Federation’s Board of Directors has unanimously endorsed a “package of comprehensive reforms” for both Davis Cup and Fed Cup at a meeting in Indian Wells.

The recommendations will have to be ratified by the ITF’s AGM in Vietnam in August.

Changes were discussed following a review of current match formats.

Any reform will require a formal vote of approval. – All News First!
