Davis Cup Finals

The Davis Cup Finals is an annual international team tournament in tennis where 18 countries compete to win the top team event in tennis. In 2019, the Davis Cup Finals replaced the old Davis Cup format which involved matches being played at different points throughout the year with only two teams competing in the Davis Cup Final.

The 2021 Davis Cup Finals will be held in three cities, Innsbruck in Austria, Madrid in Spain, and Turin in Italy from the 25th of November to the 5th of December 2021 with the final being played in Madrid on the 5th of December.
