Racquets (2-4): You obviously aren't getting too far in a match without these. However many people DON'T bring back up racquets in case something happens to the first one out of the bag. Your strings could break the racquet could slip out of your hand and crack your grip could get worn and slippery...if any of these things happen you should always have another racquet to pull out of the bag.
But with all due respect to these cons there are too many pros for the ITF not to move forward with these proposed changes. There is no denying that Davis Cup has becoming increasingly irrelevant in a crowded calendar and that is a result in large part to the lack of consistent star power. The established elite can hardly be blamed for not wanting to commit to multiple ties though particularly given that they do not know where or on what surface they will be played. By reducing the Davis Cup to a single week players will now know where and when they will be expected to compete and when factoring in travel and preparation it will also ultimately require less of a commitment of their valuable time than the current format does. It is a recipe that must look more enticing to the biggest names.
