Stockholm Wants Israeli Tennis Tie
The Swedish Tennis Association is pushing to hold next month’s Davis Cup tennis tie with Israel in front of a public audience in the nation’s capital.
The tie is scheduled to be played behind closed doors at a venue in Malmö after the City’s council said that it couldn’t risk allowing spectators because of the security risk. Several anti-Israeli demonstrations were planned in Malmö during the tie, which takes place between March 6-8.
The secretary general of the Swedish Tennis Association, Henrik Kallen, has offered to stage the group match. A decision on moving the match is expected shortly.
