The Davis Cup announced the celebration of its Finals , promoted and organized by Kosmos Tennis , a company chaired by Gerard Piqué , in a new format that divides it into two parts and five venues. Between September 14 and 18, 16 teams will meet in the group stage held in four locations, including Malaga , which leaves Spain as one of the hosts. However, the great threat of the tournament in this round will be the US Open, whose closeness in dates could leave Davis without its big stars in this first final instance.
The New York Grand Slam will be held between August 29 and September 11, the date of the men’s final. This last day of the tournament is separated in only three from the beginning of the group stage of the Davis Cup Finals , so the stars of the national team competition are in serious danger of being absent from the last instance before the final, which It will be between November 23 and 27 with Abu Dhabi as the most likely venue, in the absence of official confirmation.
The North American summer tour will have unmissable stops at the Toronto Masters 1000 , the Rogers Cup, from August 7 to 14 and Cincinnati, of the same category, in the following week until August 21. Later, a week of rest and the dispute of the US Open. In total there will be five weeks of tournaments, six if we add those who attend the ATP 500 in Washington, as Nadal did in 2021, and then give themselves a well-deserved rest that the Davis Cup will not allow its participants.
Thus, the main tennis players on the circuit, such as Zverev, Djokovic, Berrettini or Rafa Nadal , will have to choose whether to take a break after the US Open or whether to travel to the other side of the pond to enroll in a new tie that would begin a few days after the completion of the tournament at Flushing Meadows. The expectations with Davis are enormous, but participation can drop significantly with the decision that tennis players are forced to make.
The four groups of the penultimate phase of the Davis Cup , which will have their different venues in Malaga, Glasgow, Hamburg and Bologna , will have four participants in each of them, of which only two will have a place in the Finals, be held in Abu Dhabi – in the absence of official confirmation – from November 23 to 27. The draw to be held on March 31 in London will allow the visible faces of world tennis what their rivals will be in a round in which they might not be due to the tight schedule and the logical priority of the US Open over the group stage of the Davis.
