Decision of the ITF Board of Directors regarding Davis Cup venue for Ukraine v Belgium

The ITF Board of Directors has upheld the appeal of the Belgian Tennis Federation against the decision of the Davis Cup Committee to confirm Kiev as the venue for the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off tie between Ukraine and Belgium on 12-14 September. The tie will no longer be played in Ukraine.

The Board noted that the original decision by the Davis Cup Committee had not been unanimous; and that while the recent political unrest had occurred in eastern Ukraine, a disturbance in Kiev’s Independence Square as recently as last Thursday indicated that the security situation there was fluid.

Ukraine now has the option to nominate a neutral venue. As per Davis Cup Regulations 27e (i), (ii) (a), (ii) (b):

If Ukraine chooses to play in a neutral venue, the Ukrainian Tennis Federation has five working days to file a full completed application to the Davis Cup Committee for approval. Ukraine will be considered the home nation for the purposes of the conduct and financial arrangements of this tie and shall have the right to choice of ball and the surface of the court.

If Ukraine does not choose to play in a neutral venue, the Davis Cup Committee has the right to decide that the tie be held on a neutral ground or in Belgium.

If the Committee’s decision is to play on a neutral ground, both nations shall be considered visiting nations for the purposes of the conduct and financial arrangements for this tie. However, Ukraine would lose its turn in the choice of ground rotation. If the Committee decides to play in Belgium, then the Belgian Tennis Federation would be responsible for the conduct and financial arrangements of the tie, including the choice of surface and ball. Ukraine would then have choice of ground for the next two meetings with Belgium.
Belgium leads Ukraine 2-0

Last meeting:
2009 World Group Play-Off: Belgium d. Ukraine (in Belgium) 3-2

Ukraine versus Belgium to be held in Tallinn
NEWS ARTICLE

The ITF has announced that the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off tie between Ukraine and Belgium will be hosted by the Ukrainian Tennis Federation at the Tere Tennis Centre in Tallinn, Estonia on 12-14 September.

The neutral venue was proposed by the Ukrainian Tennis Federation, who retained choice of ground after the tie was unable to be staged in Ukraine. The venue has been approved by the Davis Cup Committee. The tie will be played on indoor hard court.

The Tere Tennis Centre successfully hosted Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group III with 12 nations competing from 5-8 February. The centre most recently hosted Davis Cup action in February 2012 with Estonia defeating Luxembourg 5-0.

This is only the third meeting between the two nations, with Belgium holding a 2-0 advantage. The sides last met in 2009 with Belgium securing a narrow 3-2 World Group Play-off victory in Charleroi. Belgium is looking to retain its place in the World Group for the third successive year, while Ukraine is looking to earn World Group status for the first time.

A total of eight World Group play-off ties will be held on 12-14 September, alongside the two World Group semifinals between France and Czech Republic in Paris, and Switzerland and Italy in Geneva.

Goffin was merciless in this tie. How many breaks did he get in 6 sets?? I think Stakhovsky's only holds today were to 40.
