Davis Cup final to be played in Ghent on clay

LONDON (AP) -- The Davis Cup final between Belgium and Britain will be played in Ghent on clay.

The International Tennis Federation says the Nov. 27-29 final will take place at the Flanders Expo on an indoor clay court. The arena will have a capacity of 13,000.

Britain beat Australia 3-2 and Belgium defeated Argentina 3-2 in Sunday's semifinals to set up the first Davis Cup final between the two nations since 1904.

Britain reached its first final in 37 years.

Andy Murray won all three points for Britain against Australia. He has suggested he may skip the ATP World Tour Finals in London in order to prepare to play on clay against Belgium. The ATP has warned Murray that the season-ending tournament is a "mandatory event."
