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.
Warmup equipment: Once again you don't want to step onto the court for your match with cold muscles and without being warmed up. A jumprope can help get your legs ready while a resistance band is great for warming up your arm and shoulder. A lot of players even keep a football in their bag to throw around between matches. Tossing a football around is especially good because it replicates and helps improve your service motion.
Lightning fast players like Sascha Zverev and Ana Ivanovic will perform in the new adizero Ubersonic 2. Their dynamic and aggressive style calls for a shoe that doesn’t get in the way of their game but elevates it to new heights. For them – and for all players who waste no time scoring points sprinting cross-court to hit impossible winners - the adizero Ubersonic 2 is the right choice.
