Enjoy the World Cup of Tennis!
Davis Cup by Rakuten is the World Cup of Tennis. Founded in 1900, it is the largest annual international team competition in sport, with 142 nations entered in 2020. Starting in 2019, the new format brings together the top 18 nations contesting the Davis Cup Finals in a week-long season finale to crown the Davis Cup champions. Like 2019, the 2020 Davis Cup Finals will be held in Madrid. Twenty-four teams will compete in the Davis Cup by Rakuten Qualifiers 2020 on 6–7 March, with the ties played under a home-and-away format: Croatia, India, Belgium, Hungary, Argentina, Colombia, United States, Uzbekistan, Australia, Brazil, Italy, the Republic of Korea, Germany, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Uruguay, Japan, Ecuador, Sweden and Chile. The 12 winning nations will advance to the Davis Cup Finals 2020 where they will be joined by the four semi-finalists from the Finals 2019 (Spain, Canada, Great Britain and Russia) as well as two wild cards (France and Serbia). The 12 losing nations will compete in Zone Group action. The Davis Cup by Rakuten Madrid Finals will take place over the course of one week, including opening and closing ceremonies. The 18 teams will compete in a group stage of six groups of three teams. The six group winners plus the two second-best teams based on sets won and games won will qualify for the quarter-finals. In the 2019 Finals, Spain won its sixth Davis Cup title and became the first champions of the new format. Rafa Nadal, the team’s number one, was key to Spanish success, playing and winning each of his individual matches in addition to his doubles clashes, departing the Caja Mágica undefeated. Roberto Bautista was the other pillar of the team. Canada, runner-up in 2019, demonstrated in Madrid that they are serious contenders for the title. For the first time in history, the team made the final of the competition and did so thanks to the contributions throughout 2019 of Denis Shapovalov (age 20), Felix Auger-Aliassime (19), and relative veteran Vasek Pospisil (29). Russia and Serbia, two of the great favourites from last year’s Finals battled for a place in the semi-finals, taking their fight to a atie-break in the decisive third set of the last of their matches: the doubles. On one side of the court was the imposing Russian pair of Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev. On the other, Novak Djokovic with Viktor Troicki. In the end, Russia needed only one match point to press home the advantage. Andy Murray, Nick Kyrgios, Gael Monfils, David Goffin, Diego Schwartzmann, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga were among other top players appearing in the first edition of the Finals. Madrid was selected as the venue by the competition Steering Committee. From 18 to 24 November 2019, the 18 best national teams in the world met in the Spanish capital. In 2020, the event will take place from 23 to 29 November. Below are the twelve cities hosting Davis Cup Qualifiers 2020 action: Croatia (1) vs India. Zagreb (Croatia) Belgium (2) vs Hungary.

Ratings and Reviews
Very limited information
Bad app. There is very limited information. If you want to see the past matches, who played and won you can’t get the information, you only see the name of the winner so you don’t know who he played against. Also, for the future matches you only see the countries but no information about who is the actual player playing. Lastly, there is no live scores. It’s a pretty useless app. They must improve it a lot if they want fans following the new Davis Cup format.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedbacks. We are working on some minor improvements for the Finals and a better user's experience for the coming months.
We submitted a new version that corrects the names' replication, the current version of the App is now available.
You can find the results for the live games under the "Live" central button, and for passed games in the "Schedule" button, selecting the day first and finally the game's tie with the "See tie" button.
Improving but still a long way to go
Very slow. No “back” button on most pages so you often have to start all over again after you’re finished with a page. Some pages have option to change to Spanish but most don’t. There’s really no need to change the language on pages like Results where it’s just numbers or brackets showing the countries (which are abbreviated in English anyway!) but it would be nice to be able to change the language on pages like News. Usually, when looking at Results, I’m redirected from the app to Siri. Not sure what’s up with that. Very slow to update news, e.g., the finals will start in a few hours but the latest match news is about “upcoming” quarter final matches. Update: the final was yesterday but the latest “news” is that Russia made it to the semifinals.
Too many screens
The app is decent but like all apps that provide tennis related live scoring functionality, this one does not do a good job of displaying consolidated scoring information across multiple concurrent matches. The same is true for information about Draws and Schedules, which I find is not presented in an efficient way with minimum number of screens. Perhaps more screens translates to more ad revenue which I can certainly understand and which is a common issue with apps in general now. I also think that the Portrait view can be a limitation versus Landscape for iPad users in this regard but I’m not sure I’m right about that since the total area size is the same. Thanks for listening.
