Former British No. 1 Greg Rusedski thinks that the inaugural Davis Cup Finals "exceeded expectations" in its first year but insists that still there are some things in the new format that need to get fixed. The Davis Cup Finals held its inaugural last week at Caja Magica in Madrid, where the hosts Spain beat Canada in the final to delight the local crowd and win their sixth Davis Cup title.
Many were anxious to see how would the Davis Cup look under the new format as the competition received lots of criticism from active and former players when it introduced the new format. "I have to say the new Davis Cup exceeded expectations in year 1.
I still miss home and away ties. The event should be in a different country every year as Spain has a home venue every year. Scheduling, and date in calendar must be better," Rusedski wrote on Twitter. World No. 1 Rafael Nadal finished the week undefeated, having won five matches in singles and having being a part of three doubles wins.
