The ITF has announced that the Davis Cup and the Fed Cup have been cancelled for 2020. They will return in 2021.
The 2020 Davis Cup finals will now take place November 22, 2021 in Madrid. Also, the 24 home-and-away World Group I and World Group II ties due to be played in September this year have been moved to 2021.
Gerard Pique, Kosmos Tennis President said: “It’s a huge disappointment for all of us that the Davis Cup Finals will not be held in 2020. We don’t know how the situation will develop in each qualified nation, or if restrictions in Spain will remain sufficiently eased, as such it is impossible to predict the situation in November and guarantee the safety of those travelling to Madrid. This postponement has no long-term bearing on our collective ambitions for the Davis Cup. The ITF and Kosmos Tennis look forward to delivering an outstanding competition in 2021, when it is safe and feasible to do so.”
The Fed Cup finals, which were due to be played in April before the Coronavirus hit, will be played April 13, 2021. The Finals will be played on indoor clay courts at the Laszlo Papp Arena in Budapest, Hungary.
