Last year the inaugural Laver Cup which pitted Team Europe against Team World generated plenty of buzz. The vast majority of it was positive and the event was deemed an immediate and overwhelming success. Not surprisingly many found it impossible not to compare it to the other team competition in men's tennis the Davis Cup and suffice it to say it was not a favorable comparison where the more historic competition was concerned. Whether or not that was the catalyst for change folks may never know but it was music to the ears when earlier this week International Tennis Federation President David Haggerty announced that the ITF was on the verge of making some much-needed adjustments to Davis Cup.
We love tennis. As with anything it isn’t perfect and never will be. We simply need to protect its image enjoy the here and now and ensure its future as it inevitably evolves into something slightly different. Society in general seems to be slipping into a less disciplined and respectful place. If tennis were to go the same way it would be a shame.
