Ferrero: “Federer and Djokovic not playing Davis Cup is bad news”

Davis Cup will take place from 18 to 24 November this year in Madrid. The World No 1 Novak Djokovic confirmed he would not play Davis Cup finals. Roger Federer joined him and also Alexander Zverev as the latest players to renounce the event. Juan Carlos Ferrero, former world No. 1, commented on the Davis Cup new format.  "In terms of schedule, it's good because it was very past. Playing five sets matches all year makes it very tough, many times you do not have a lot of strength in the Davis Cup. And then the recovery is pretty complicated. Then it's something very new, saying things earlier is s mistake. You have to test it a bit", said Ferrero. "Not all the top players will be there, though. Novak Djokovic said he will prioritize the ATP Cup over the Davis Cup, while Switzerland did not reach the final stage. Important names like Roger Federer and Djokovic usually played the Davis Cup and now they will not go, which will influence in a bad way on the project."
