Annoying disruption in my tennis following schedule, I couldn't care less about tennis being played as a team sport and I don't experience any of the magic other people seem to associate with this event.

I find it nice to see some of these matches that happen in Davis Cup.

Emotions, rivalries, best of 5, biased crowds, different surface speeds, crying people, big trophy, a shot at glory (even for the lesser gods like Troicki). What's not to like?

It's a waste of energy for the players and the upcoming clay court schedule. Kill themselves over this weekend and then they feel the effects of it.

It's bad for the tour.

I've got mixed feelings about it.

Pros
-Best of 5
-Different atmosphere than a normal tennis tournament (loud/crazy)
-Players get the pick the surface that suits them

Cons
-Teams. I really like that generally tennis is an individual sport
-Coaches
-Interrupts the schedule/tires players out

I don't see what's not to like. Anyway, watching is not required if you don't like fortunately

I don't care about it at all from a patriotic perspective (as I'm completely unpatriotic anyway). But the format is good and it's more tennis to watch

Tennis wouldn't be the same without it. It's the only chance you get to cheer for your own country when watching tennis. Besides, there's a great history behind it.

Exactly.

A whole different brand of emotions than your usual boring tennis week.
