Introduced in 1900 and one of the oldest trophies in sports, Davis Cup is an annually contested 'World Cup of Men’s Tennis.' Each year the best players in the world represent their countries in a battle to determine the sport’s best men’s tennis nation.
The Davis Cup playoff follows Indian tennis' recent success at the Australian Open. The country’s Rohan Bopana, at age 43, won the tournament’s doubles title and became the oldest major doubles champion ever and the oldest World No.1-ranked doubles player in men’s tennis history.
