Davis Cup is not fan friendly says GB captain Leon Smith
Great Britain's Davis Cup captain Leon Smith says the competition's format is not "fan or player friendly". Reforms were endorsed in March to reduce the current five-set format to three sets played over two days. GB's Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund both played best-of-three sets in their singles rubbers against France as the hosts secured a 4-1 victory on Sunday. Smith - who admitted on Saturday that GB's squad "lacked depth" - said the existing format could stop the world's top players from competing. Serbia's Novak Djokovic was the only player ranked in the top 10 to appear for any of the nations in the quarter-finals.
