The 2020 Davis Cup finals will be postponed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organisers announced Friday. The event’s next edition will begin on 22 November 2021.
The 18 teams that have already qualified for this year’s Finals will compete at the rescheduled Finals in 2021, with the draw remaining as published.
“This is a tough decision to have to make, but delivering an international team event on this scale while guaranteeing the health and safety of all involved ultimately poses too great a risk,” ITF President David Haggerty said. “It is a complex undertaking and we have made the decision now to provide certainty for players, national associations and fans.”
Rafael Nadal led Spain to the 2019 title, clinching the trophy with a victory against Canadian Denis Shapovalov.
