Budapest lands Finals as ITF revamps Fed Cup

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has followed through on its pledge to implement similar reform plans for its Fed Cup tournament as those introduced for the Davis Cup, while Budapest has sealed a three-year contract to stage the finals of the new-look women’s national team event.

The ITF today (Thursday) announced a new ‘World Cup of Tennis’ format for the Fed Cup, including the launch of the 2020 Finals in the Hungarian capital from April 14-19 next year. The Finals will be staged at the Laszlo Papp Budapest Sports Arena on clay on two match courts for three years through to 2022. This means that this year’s final between Australia and France in Perth will be the last staged on ‘home’ ground.
