Barcelona to host Davis Cup Final

The Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona will be the venue where the final of the Davis Cup (Spain-Czech Republic) will be played. The chosen surface is carpet. Sorry, red clay. The Sant Jordi already hosted the 2000 Final against Australia and has a capacity of 17,200 spectators.

Valencia was the other candidate, but we don't have a proper indoor arena...

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Barcelona to host Davis Cup Final

Re: Barcelona to host Davis Cup Final

I will be there during that time! So exciting- in theory. How much does it cost, usually, for a ticket to the final? If it's over 20 euro it's a sad, sad day for me.

Re: Barcelona to host Davis Cup Final

Never in doubt, good choice.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

20 Euro For 20 Euro you could buy 2 sandwiches when I went for Davis Cup match Spain-Isreal.
The cheapest ticket for all 3 days will be around 150 Euro.
