    2020 Davis Cup will also feature World Group I and II

    Not sure. Iwht 24 teams per division, climbing and falling will be easier. My worry is the excessive travelling. I wouldn't like Uruguay to play Poland or Phillipines. Matchups should be regional.

    World TeamTennis is still active. Back to college tennis, the big conference teams rely on donors. They want the best players they can get, and they want to play versus the most prestigious rivals. If colleges want to reduce costs, they can join single-sport conferences. Volleyball, lacrosse...
