The Spanish city of Malaga will host the 2024 Davis Cup Finals as well, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) has confirmed.
This year, for the very first time, all the competition’s quarterfinal, semifinal and final encounters were organised in Malaga. The move was not welcomed by some of the big names such as Serbia’s Novak Djokovic and Australia’s Lleyton Hewitt.
Both were of the opinion that having Davis Cup at a neutral venue and not playing on a home-and-away basis as it was used to is not helping in engaging the local fans.
The current world number one’s journey in the competition came to a bitter end as his side lost in the semifinal to Italy despite taking a 1-0 lead.
Despite the opposition, the ITF has announced that Malaga will once again host the Davis Cup Finals in 2024 as well. It was Italy who ended up lifting the title as they defeated Australia in the final of the mega-event on Sunday.
In the first game of the grand finale, it was Italy’s Matteo Arnaldi who came out on top against Australia’s Alexei Popyrin with a score of 7-5, 2-6, 6-4. In the second match, it was young Jannik Sinner who once again lived up to the occasion and outclassed Alex de Minaur in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 6-0.
