Davis Cup putoff to 2021

India’s Davis Cup tie against Finland was on Friday postponed to 2021 as the International Tennis Federation (ITF) pushed back all the matches, including the Finals in Madrid, to next year owing to COVID-19 pandemic.

India were scheduled to travel to Finland for the World Group I tie in September but now the tie will be played either in March or September next year.

The ITF’s decision has come days after four of world’s leading tennis players, including number one Novak Djokovic, tested positive for the dreaded virus following their participation in exhibition matches in Serbia and Croatia.

“The decision to postpone the event comes following a three-month review of the considerable logistical and regulatory challenges that have arisen as a result of the pandemic and all potential hosting scenarios with the health and safety of all involved of paramount importance,” ITF said in a statement.
