London | Djokovic believes sport should concentrate on quality
NOVAK Djokovic believes having a World Team Cup – to be launched on Thursday – and Davis Cup is not “good for the sport”.
The world No.1 said: “Obviously the Davis Cup and World Team Cup situation is delicate. We find ourselves in this kind of particular circumstances and situations that we have to deal with right now.
“I think in the next two years we’ll have both events happening in a very similar format if not the same, six weeks apart.
“Whether I think that’s good for our sport, I honestly don’t think it’s good for the sport. More job opportunities for players, yes.
“But I think it’s not sustainable. It will happen that we will have two average events. So I think creating one event is an ideal scenario and I think outcome for everyone.
“From what I’ve heard from conversations with people from all of the sides, different sides in this sport, they all want to have one event because it’s over-saturated with different Cups, different events.
“We have the longest season in all sports. We’re just adding events. We kind of have to try to focus on quality rather than quantity.”
