Duesseldorf to stop hosting World Team Cup

Duesseldorf to stop hosting World Team Cup

Duesseldorf is pulling out as host of the ATP World Team Cup after more than 30 years because it cannot find a new sponsor for the May event.
The German organizers say they have not been able to line up a new title sponsor after the withdrawal of the ARAG insurance group.
Duesseldorf has staged the eight-team competition every May since 1978. The weeklong event was always played the week before the French Open and was a major clay-court warmup for Roland Garros.
Tennis has been on a steep decline in Germany since Boris Becker and Steffi Graf ended their careers.
