A few days ago the ATP season ended with the ATP Finals where Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic triumphed for the sixth time in his career. These days now the Davis Cup Final Four are being held, an event held in Malaga and which also sees Filippo Volandri's Italy as protagonists.
There has been a lot of controversy surrounding this competition for the new format, and for the fact that there are only two Top Ten players in the Finals. With the arrival of Kosmos, the new Davis Cup has changed several things and many have criticized the format.
The president of the French federation Gilles Moretton has made interesting statements to the microphones of the Equipe and has severely attacked the world of tennis.
Gilles Moretton and the words about the new Davis Cup
The French manager made the following statements: "The competition is now defined and given how the ITF has organized everything for us it is impossible to grow and advance in the world of tennis.
There is no transparency in the ITF, we hardly know the details for which Kosmos has acquired the direction of the tournament and we have no idea how we can get out of this agreement. There is a risk that despite world tennis failing to grasp any development we are forced to remain tied to everything." Moretton continued by explaining that at the moment no one is accepting the federation's promotion initiatives, not even the proposal to integrate padel to tennis has not been accepted.
Moretton continued: "The ITF should focus on promoting tennis, I think the previous Davis Cup had the tools to promote our sport, much more than this Davis. The reality is that the tennis world has surrendered to the seductive power of money." Yet another hard attack for a format that is not yet popular with everyone.
Piqué is also at the center of the controversy, in a very complicated year for him, both from a sporting and personal point of view. In fact, remember that the Spanish soccer player has also ended his relationship with the Colombian pop star Shakira.
