Tennis fraternity remains divided as Davis Cup faces radical overhaul

The most radical overhaul in the 118-year history of the Davis Cup could be given the green light on Thursday. The Tennis world gathers in Florida to vote on sweeping reforms which have divided the sport.

Delegates at the International Tennis Federation's annual meeting in Orlando, Florida will decide whether proposals pushed by Federation Chief David Haggerty are to be given the go-ahead.

Haggerty's proposals will see the Davis Cup's sprawling existing format, stretched across the calendar year and played in all corners of the globe, condensed into a season-ending event played at a single, neutral venue.

 Haggerty told AFP in a recent interview the revamped tournament would enable the ITF and member federations to boost tennis's global development for years to come.
