French Davis Cup supporters take stand

The reigning Davis Cup champions have made their feelings about the proposed “revamp” fairly clear, offering an impassioned defence of the current format.

And the players are not alone. Their merry band of traveling fans unfurled a banner during the playing of the “La Marseillaise”, prior to the start of the country’s quarterfinal tie against Italy in Genoa Friday.

The fans also are wearing black headbands as a symbol of their fundamental issues with the International Tennis Federation’s plan to turn it into a once-a-year, big-bucks event at a neutral venue in Asia.
