It makes total sense, if you played a team before in the history of davis cup you play them in the opposite place that you played them last time. If you haven't played them before it's random.

This isn't like football where you play a home and away and go by highest aggerate. Or hockey/basketball/baseball where you play a best of 7 where one team gets 4 home, one gets 3 home.

In Davis Cup There's only 1 tie and someone has to be at home. You can't just play the higher seed at home everytime then the lower seeds will never get revenue from home ties and improve from this revenue. How do you suggest they do it?
