The tie for the Davis Cup round of 16 between Spain and the United Kingdom will be held on the Golden Mile. The candidacy of Marbella for matches to be played in that mythical scenario, which already housed in 1989 a tie between Spain and Mexico , imposed on the one presented by Granada, which proposed the Sports Palace of that city.
The vote in the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation, in which representatives of all regional federations participated, took place last Wednesday in Zaragoza and the candidacy of Marbella won, according to sources consulted by this newspaper. As a rule, the Spanish federation does not make a decision about the venue without the agreement of the team captain. In this case, Sergi Bruguera, who debuts in that responsibility, before giving his agreement wanted to consult the players, who gave their approval. For that reason, official communication has been delayed until now.
