Madrid has been chosen to host the first two new-format Davis Cup finals in 2019 and 2020, the organizers of the top international men’s team tennis event said Thursday.

Under a format proposed by the Kosmos group, headed by Barcelona footballer Gerard Pique, and adopted by the International Tennis Federation in August, the competition will bring together 18 nations in one place for a week at the end of the tennis season.
