    Re: Davis Cup '20

    Italy just issued an order that all sporting events will be played without fans present for the next month. There didn't appear to be exceptions to this, what I read said throughout the country. So it would appear, even though it's taking place in Sardinia, the Davis Cup qualifier in Italy will not have fans present similar to the one being held in Japan.

    Did anyone watch any Davis Cup action? I didn't watch a single minute of it. Not even clear on where it aired in the US. It's hard to see how this is an improved format.

    I didn't even know it was happening, but it appeared to be pretty one sided in most of the cases. The Bryan twins clinched for the US last night in their last Davis Cup match.
