Davis Cup will very likely have some sad changes for next year:

 

- Two days instead of three

- Best of three sets instead of best of five

 

This sucks, especially the last part. How long until the same is happening with Grand Slams and there's no more epic five set marathons left? :(

Stupid Bosnian fans :sick: (is what Haase is thinking)

 

"Every time when I'm serving they do mwaaah and pffffft", says Haase, imitating Bosnian fans making kissing and farting sounds :roflmao:

 

Robin you're such a weird guy, obviously losing the set right after this 'incident' :d

Reforms for Fed Cup and Davis Cup have been accepted, with the biggest one being Davis Cup matches will now all be played as best-of-three tiebreak sets instead of best-of-five :cry:

 

Just a matter of time before they ruin Grand Slams as well with their 'everything must be shorter' attitude of destroying magical five setters.

RIP 117 year legacy of The Davis Cup...  

 

And the lame players that only care for money, would probably welcome it with open hands.. In a fantasy world big mouth Nadal, Murray etc. would protest this decision, but when it's not in their favour why bother...

Is DC really something that big/important (if we exclude the hype, of course...)?

 

Croatia for example played final last year, so I have to actually believe we are the second best nation in men's tennis, behind Argentina? Yeah, not...

Sort of. Definitely the tournament with the best atmosphere of all, or at least in many of the top matches. I've been at the Davis Cup doubles match during the NED - SUI match-up in 2012, when Haase/Rojer beat Federer/Wawrinka and the atmosphere was just electric. Just like it is many times I watch DC on TV.
