Belgium to Host Davis Cup Final Against Great Britain on clay in Ghent

DCshowyourcolours

(September 23, 2015) The Davis Cup final between Belgium and Great Britain will be played in Ghent indoors on clay. The International Tennis Federation announced that Tennis Vlaanderen has nominated the Flanders Expo to host the 2015 Davis Cup World Group Final November 27-29.

 

The Flanders Expo is a multi-use indoor arena made up of eight halls. Hall 1, which has a seating capacity of 13,000 will be used for the final

 

Tennis Vlaanderen President Dirk de Maeseneer said to the ITF: “Ghent will fully support the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Final. As the third biggest city in Belgium, it has a lot of experience in hosting top international events, such as the Tour of Flanders, the arrival of the Tour de France in 2007 and the Gymnastics World Championships in 2001 and 2013.”

 

Great Britain advanced to the final when they defeated Australia 3-2 in Galsgow, with British No. 1 Andy Murray won all three rubbers for his squad – his two singles matches and the doubles with his brother Jamie.

Belgium came back to defeat Argentina 3-2 in Brussels. This will be a rematch of the 1904 Davis Cup final when Britain shutout Belgium 5-0. This will be Belgium’s second final. Great Britain last won the Davis Cup in 1936.

Murray tweeted on Wednesday:
