Lleyton Hewitt, Australia Davis Cup captain has taken a swipe at Gerard Pique for his role in changing the format of the competition.
The Barcelona star’s Kosmos investment group has been involved in the revamp of the Davis Cup, and Hewitt believes the new set-up is ‘ridiculous’.

The Australian has questioned why a football player is involved and says he would not get involved in a sport he knows little about. “Now we’re getting run by a Spanish football player, which is like me come out and asking to change things for the Champions League,” said Hewitt. “He knows nothing about tennis.”
Hewitt is far from happy and fears the game’s top players will also turn away from Davis Cup action. “I don’t agree at all with it. I think having the finals in one place is ridiculous,” added Hewitt. “I personally don’t think all the top players will play. We will wait and see.”
