As Super Bowl Grips the World, the Davis Cup ... and Tennis ... Suffer Again

As Super Bowl Grips the World, the Davis Cup ... and Tennis ... Suffer Again

This weekend there will be a global sports event in the U.S. that probably a good chunk of Jerseyans interested in a sport would love to watch. It's not The Super Bowl. It's Davis CUp, perhaps the best kept secret in U.S. sport.

There are few team sports competitions with such a long history and tradition as Davis Cup in men’s tennis. Similar to Ryder Cup in golf, Davis Cup takes usually the best of the best in an individual men’s sports and brings those players together in the rarest of rare, as a team, to play for their country against the greatest tennis-playing nations around the globe. In many countries the interest can rival that of World Cup or the Olympics, and for many tennis federations the ability to bring the best players in the world together in some very unique venues is a great way to showcase the game, grow interest and bring in much needed revenue to fuel junior programs and keep the sport healthy.
