Davis Cup to join ATP Tour calendar in 23

The Davis Cup will become a part of the ATP Tour calendar from next year under a groundbreaking deal signed between the governing body of men’s tennis, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and tournament promoters Kosmos.

The move comes after the ATP Cup, a joint venture between Tennis Australia and the ATP was all but put to bed last week with the announcement of a mixed-sex $15 million ($A23m) event featuring teams from 18 nations to kick off the 2023 season.

That new tournament reflects the growing cooperation between the men’s and women’s tours and the ITF who have moved towards streamlining the governance of the game since the COVID crisis disrupted the 2020 season.

“Our focus is always on creating the best possible experiences for our fans and players,” ATP chairman Andrea Gaudenzi said in a statement on Monday.
