Davis Cup

Swedish Tennis Association Could Ask Malmö To Pay Fine

Published måndag 6 april 2009 kl 19.31
Demonstrations took place at the time of the match

The Swedish Tennis Association has said it may bill Malmö city council if it loses its appeal against a 25,000 dollar fine for staging Sweden’s David Cup match against Israel behind closed closed doors.

The association condemned the council after last week’s decision by the Davis Cup committee for what it called an ”unfortunate consequence of individual politicians trying to score political points.”

At the time, Malmö council, which had been strongly critical of Israel after the Gaza invasion , said it could not guarantee security at the cup venue where large anti-Israeli demonstrations were planned.

On Monday, the Swedish Tennis Association, said ”Our first step is to appeal those fines that we are obliged to pay. If the appeal is not approved then we have to ask ourselves: can we go back to the city of Malmo and charge those fines to them?”

An ITF spokesman said the Swedish Federation had until May 2 to lodge a complaint
