Duesseldorf to stop hosting World Team Cup

Duesseldorf to stop hosting World Team Cup

After 30 years, Duesseldorf won't host of the ATP World Team Cup because it cannot find a new sponsor.

The organizers said they have not been able to find a new title sponsor after the withdrawal of the ARAG insurance group.

The tennis event was always played the week before the French Open and was a major clay-court warmup for Roland Garros.

Argentina defeat USA to win World Team Cup

Argentina defeat USA to win World Team Cup

Argentina beat the United States 2-1 to win World Team Cup.

Juan Monaco defeated Sam Querrey 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 and Horacio Zeballos scored a 6-4, 6-7 (7/9), 7-5 win over Robby Ginepri.

Zeballos's victory gave Argentina a 2-0 lead and the trophy but Bob and Mike Bryan defeated Diego Veronelli and Eduardo Schwank 6-1, 6-2 in the doubles to give their country at least 1 point.

"I think my match was difficult, but also his (Zeballos?) match was incredible," said Monaco. "He was fighting like an animal for, like, three hours. We are very happy because when we came here the goal was to win here for Argentina and we did it."

Ginepri added: "It was a tough fight. The first set, I got off to a shaky start. I was a little nervous when I realised that I had to get through the match for the U.S. to have a chance to win it.

"But hats off to him, he played well. I fought hard to win that second set after saving a match point and had some momentum going into the third set, but just wasn?t able to put as many balls into the court as I needed to."

This is the 11th time this 2 countries will play each other. The US won 9 of thos encounters while Argentina won just 1.

“I got off to a really good start and I actually continued it really early in the second,” Isner said. “But he picked up his game, he picked his return of serve, obviously because he broke me three times in the second set. And then when we went to the third it was a real dogfight. … Still, I played pretty well. I still like the way I’m playing heading into the French Open.”
