Following an appeal by the Belgian Tennis Federation, the ITF board of directors confirmed on the 12th of August that the upcoming tie will no longer be held in Kiev, Ukraine due to security concerns.

The board confirmed today that the new venue will instead be held on neutral grounds in Tallinn, Estonia. The decision prompted an angry response from Ukrainian number 2 and current world 94 Sergiy Stakhovsky. Stakhovsky recently described the decision on August 12th as “Insane” and accused the Belgian Tennis Federation of “far from being decent”. In light of today's decision, to move the tie to Estonia, Stakhovsky tweeted the following:

@DavisCup you should be ashamed of yourself. What you did to #Ukraine will trail for long time behind you....

This Stakhovsky character sounds like a douchebag.

Stakhovsky can be such a douche. Is he bi-polar or something? He either comes across as a great guy or as a complete prick.

Ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh its *only* 700 km from Ukraine, and there's no chance that a civil war ever spills over into riots in big cities right? And is the fact that Ukrainians die supposed to make us feel BETTER?
