Davis Cup Finals choose GreenSet as court-builder for Caja Magica

Established in 1970, GreenSet company has been one of the leading manufacturers of tennis surfaces in more than 60 countries, providing the surfaces on the ATP Tour for more than 25 years and on all the junior levels. Since 1982 (Toulouse), GreenSet have installed more than 3000 courts for more than 600 tournaments, working with national Federations and the leading Academies in the world, including Rafa Nadal (Spain), Mouratoglou (France), Sanchez-Casal (Spain and USA), Bruguera (Spain) and Pierre Barthes (France).

In 2018, GreenSet had installed the surface at more than 20 events all around the world, including Les Petits As, three Davis Cup ties, ATP events in Montpellier, Tokyo, Antwerp, Stockholm, Basel, Paris Masters, NextGen Finals and ATP Finals, with even bigger goals for 2019.

At the end of the season, the company will have to give their best to install the hard court surface at Caja Magica for the first edition of the Davis Cup Finals that will take place between November 18-24. Davis Cup Finals will be held in Madrid in 2019 and 2020 and GreenSet will be there to set the courts, the identical one to those the players are used to on the Tour.

Javier Sánchez Vicario, President of GreenSet Worldwide, and Galo Blanco, Sports Director of Kosmos Tennis, organizer of the Davis Cup Madrid Finals have signed the deal in Barcelona and the GreenSet hard court will welcome 18 countries that will fight for the Davis Cup title.

Six groups with three teams form the round robin stage and eight best squads will reach the quarter-final and stay in the title chase. Instead of regular best-of-five sets, the format has been reduced to best-of-three sets encounters, with two singles and one doubles rubber in every tie.
