The World Team Cup, founded in 1978, has always been a certain fascination among fans, thanks to a formula quite compelling and the presence of many from the big tennis scene, arrayed in eight nationals, divided into two groups of four. In 2013, the show, based in Dusseldorf, just before the start of Roland Garros, however, will not take place.
This is largely due to high debts of the organizers, according to insiders equalling six hundred thousand dollars. Recall that last year there was a triumph for Serbia, who beat the Czech Republic in the final 3 to 0.
In 2011, during the victory they were hosted by Germany. For Italy, they reached the final and lost, dating back to the distant 1979 and 1980.
