Delhi to host India-Spain Davis Cup tie
NEW DELHI: The national capital is all set to host five-time champions Spain on the hard courts of the Delhi Lawn Tennis Association in the Davis Cup World Group Play-off tie, to be played on September 16-18.
All India Tennis Association (AITA) General Secretary Bharat Oza said keeping in mind the ongoing monsoon and the time constraint involved in preparing an alternative grass court venue, they decided to host the tournament at the DLTA.
"In addition to requirement of world group ties being quite demanding, like creation of 4,000 seat stands etc. and the time available for preparation being short, it was ultimately decided to have the matches at a venue well equipped for such tie. The tie will, therefore, be held on the hard courts of Delhi Lawn Tennis Association, Delhi," Ozha said in a statement.
