The World Number 2 Novak Djokovic asks to merge ATP Cup and Davis Cup.
ATP Cup will start tomorrow and 24 teams will play over 10 days in three cities in Australia to win the ATP Cup.
Novak Djokovic expressed his opinion about the event and mentioned it should be merged
with Davis Cup in one big event at the same time. Djokovic believes there is a risk about the event
to be overshadowed because it’s in the middle between Davis Cup and the Australian Open.Novak Djokovic Calls to merge ATP Cup with Davis Cup Embed from Getty Images
Novak Djokovic told the press that the ATP Cup and Davis Cyo should be one big event.
“We need to have one Super World Cup event, whatever you want to call it,”
“That’s not going to happen next year as well. But if the two sides, the ITF, the Davis Cup,”
“and the ATP get together very quickly, it can happen possibly for 2022.“
“I hope it will happen because it’s kind of hard to get top players to commit
to playing both events, the Davis Cup and the ATP Cup.“
“And it’s six weeks apart, so they’re not really helping each other in terms
of marketing, in terms of the value of the event.”
Novak Djokovic will be representing Serbia in the ATP Cup, next to Rafael Nadal
who is representing Spain to lead them to another victory after the title in Davis Cup.
