‘The debacle continues!’ – Slam great reignites Davis Cup feud after latest announcement
Todd Woodbridge is resentful of the latest announcement that the Davis Cup Finals will be held in Spain for a third and fourth year running.
The tournament has revealed that the knockout stage of the Davis Cup Finals will be held in Malaga in 2022 and 2023 after 2019 and 2021 saw the knockouts held in the Spanish capital of Madrid.
The Davis Cup was acquired by Kosmos Holding in 2018, a sports and entertainment investment group co-founded by Barcelona FC and Spain international football player Gerard Pique.
22-time Slam doubles champion Woodbridge tweeted: “The debacle of the Davis Cup continues.
“When are the tennis nations of the world going to stand up to the ITF and demand a change of leadership?
“What happened to the Middle East finals?”
That last comment refers to rumours from late last year that suggested the finals could move to Abu Dhabi in the UAE.
That potential move received much backlash in sporting media, apparently leading to this most recent news.

As the Davis Cup announcement elaborates, there is yet one venue to be decided for the group stage of the 2022 event.
Bologna, Italy, Glasgow, UK and Hamburg, Germany will host the stage from 14-18th September, with one other venue to be chosen.
Malaga will then host the Finals from 21-27th November as the top eight nations compete for the 2022 title.
