    Glad to see that Leon fails to mention the fans once again...

    Thanks James. Have just signed up for 7 days free trial, so I hope it’ll be easy to cancel next week!
    Can I only watch it from my iPad/laptop do you know? I have Amazon Prime on my tv but can’t see how to access this.
    Yay! I’ve got it!

    I advise you to cancel it now, you'll still get the 7 days but you won't forget at the end.

    Davis Cup finals 2019: How the new event in Madrid will look #nothinglikethedaviscupshould

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/50156073

    "Sometimes things have to change, or they have the risk to die," was Gerard Pique's blunt reasoning for the controversial reform of the Davis Cup.

    Also sometimes things get changed so much they bear little to no resemblance to their original state? (in this case for the fans and chosen venues area/economy.)
    If your statement is correct Gerard then I for one personalty hope that you and the other money grabbing crap heads responsible for this abomination don't change and you are all just one of "those things"
    That will die along with your cup.

    "We're getting run by a Spanish football player. That's like me coming out and making changes to the Champions League," Australia captain Lleyton Hewitt said earlier this year.
    Although appreciated it's easier to speak your mind when you've pretty much hung up your racket.

    "Change was necessary," said former British number one Tim Henman.

    "Top players were not playing and you could understand the reality that if you were going to get to the finals, it was going to take up eight weeks of your year.

    (that's still the case top players not playing) And if you made it to the finals you might just have something more than a case full of money. A heart full of pride and joy?

    ("Change was necessary,"??)
    Well Tim that may be the case but we all as people of this earth have to make choices. I think that is the whole point, if the top players don't want to play that's still their choice,
    and trying to entice them to play by either chucking more $ at them or watering it down does just that. It waters it's credibility down. The harder something is the greater the personal reward.
    Anything worth it's salt is worth fighting for. We know Andy, Leon and the team know this, so it makes their silence re: the supporters a little annoying, but I think they're caught between a rock and a hard place.
    I hope GB win it and realize it is just that. It ain't Coke. It's not the real thing.

    So let's just all admit that the Davis cup is gone and this is not the Davis cup and call it what it really is.............
    The money grabbing tv rights not for the supporters diluted shadow cup.
    Or in other words The pique cup.

    Re: Davis (PIQUE) Cup - Madrid - who is going

    I hear change had to happen many times. I never got that. All the top players had won - which is sort of odd if they never actually played.... Also, whilst seeing Andy at his prime in 2015/16 etc was something special, it was also huge fun seeing the lower ranked players. For that, I'd also add in watching the Fed Cup too which I've seen more recently. It was always the wonderful atmosphere and not really relevant who the player was. It's ok to say things have to change if you're a journo who gets seats on planes and hotels and matches paid for anyway. Not for us!

    I don't currently have Prime and normally only sign up when tournaments are on. I'd have to add on Eurosport to watch on my tv (I believe). The Crown was released on Sunday so Netflix may just pull rank...… Still undecided.

    Teams on court ahead of the first rubber, Andy v. the excellently named Tallon Griekspoor.
