Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal want one combined event in September -Pique

Gerard Pique said the Davis Cup may switch date and take place in September after the US Open, which may coincide with the Laver Cup co-founded by Roger Federer. Pique admitted Davis Cup may get together with ATP Cup: "This is something that is on the table.

In the last year, we've tried to sit down with the ATP, obviously the situation with the former president wasn't ideal to sit down and try to arrive to a deal. Now there will be some changes, so we are expecting that so we can sit down again.

I think that in the future, and I think that we said it, ITF and Kosmos, we are really open to sit down with the ATP and try to arrive to a deal, to make a unique competition, a super event of two weeks and try to find the bestest part in the calendar.

I think that during this week, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, No. 1 and No. 2 in the world right now, have expressed that they want the same, they want just one event, and if it's possible, to put it in September of two weeks.

And this is something that for us, I mean, since day one, we expressed we want to arrive to this deal. I think it's the best for tennis. It makes no sense to have right now two different competitions that are very similar.

And this is the way we are going. We are very happy that in the next few months I think we will start talking again with the ATP. And I hope in the next few months we can announce something."
