New Davis for­mat won’t help India

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

New Delhi: The world tennis gov­ern­ing body ITF has abol­ished the Group I and II at the re­gional level Davis Cup, mak­ing India’s road to the Qual­i­fiers even tougher.

From 2020, India will have to con­tend with su­pe­rior Euro­pean, South and North Amer­i­can na­tions in or­der to qual­ify. As per the new for­mat, Group I and II will not be there from 2020 and in­stead a 24team World Group I and a 24team World Group II will be formed. “It’s will be tougher for us,” non-play­ing cap­tain Ma­hesh Bhu­pathi said.
