    Every now and then in OZ we are hearing a little bit of info about a proposed bi annual tennis world cup

    just wondering if anyone had any more info or links behind it

    if it realistically has a chance to get going or how it would work

    it's mostly hypothetical I believe, there's a thread about here not too long ago. the idea is cool in theory but their proposal was pretty lame

    wow,

    i didnt realise it had the support of the players

    maybe this thing could grow momentum

    I feel the davis cup has been really threatened in the last 10 years, I feel it could only get worse

    a much bigger chance of getting the top men to play a one off event rather than something which could potentially take them away from tennis for a month

    also the ranking points they have introduced to davis cup are rubbish

    i really doubt that will affect any of the top players decisions to play

    and that shouldnt be your motivator anyway!

    yeah I agree with you and the idea of a tennis World Cup, but the format suggested so far I think sucks.
