ITF To Get More Involved With Drug Testing Of Players

International Tennis Federation president Francesco Ricci Bitti, has confirmed his body, working in partnership with World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), is formulating new drug testing measures and is planning to introduce a biological passport program for all professional players.



Spanish Davis Cup Captain Gets Flak For Losing

Invariably there is fall out from the team that loses the Davis Cup final and Spain, champions five times this century but beaten by the Czech Republic in Prague last weekend, are no different. The majority of the criticism is falling upon captain Alex Corretja and his decision to play Nicolas Almagro on a fast indoor hard court when perhaps Feliciano Lopez would have been more suited to the conditions.


Spanish Davis Cup Captain Responds To Critics

Spanish captain Alex Corretja has swallowed the bitter disappointment of the Davis Cup finals loss to the Czech Republic, with the skipper insisting that he's make the same team selection again. As predicted by Tomas Berdych before the Prague tie, No. 11 Spaniard Nicolas Almagro proved to be the weak link, losing both of his singles ties.

"As captain I try to cope with the situation as best I can and in the end we fought as hard as we could to win a final that eluded us by a tiny, tiny margin," he told Spanish radio Cadena Ser. "If we played Czech Republic again tomorrow I would choose the same four players."


Davis Cup Captain Courier Criticizes Davis Cup Format

On an international level, it’s rare to hear Davis Cup captains heavily criticize the format, but US captains have been known to do so, from John McEnroe, to Patrick McEnroe, and now to the current captain Jim Courier.

“It's been a great experience so far," Courier told the Las Vegas Review Journal. "The challenge is the format itself. Winning won't change interest in the Davis Cup in this country. The system is broken, and the ITF (International Tennis Federation) needs to think about changing it.”
