Re: 2019 Davis Cup, Group 3, June 17th-22, 2019 – Costa Rica
Please be advised that the International Tennis Federation (ITF) has confirmed that the 2019 Davis Cup- Group 3 competition will be held in Costa Rica at the Costa Rica Country Club in Escazú in COSTA RICA from June 17th – 22nd, 2019. The matches will be played outdoors on HARD COURTS.
Tennis Jamaica have set ambitious but attainable goals to have Jamaica’s Davis Cup team elevated from its current Group 3 status to Group 1 within the next three (3) years.
Tennis Jamaica’s Davis Cup Committee has appointed Mr. Richard Russell as our Davis Cup Program Coordinator and Ryan Russell as Non-Playing Captain for Jamaica’s 2019 and 2020 Davis Cup campaign. Richard is a former professional tennis player who has represented our Caribbean region from 1964-1972 and Ryan is Jamaica’s most successful Davis Cup player with a record of 25-14, and we are delighted to have them on board.
A major criteria and focus of our Davis Cup campaign will be to select a squad of players who are actively competing at a relatively high level in tournaments. To give Jamaica the best opportunity to elevate, we need players who are match ready, physically and mentally fit, sharp with the ability to withstand the pressures of Davis Cup play. Additionally, players will be expected to show leadership, discipline and be able to fit into team.
The 2019 Davis Cup Squad will comprise the following players:
- Cliff Dwyer
- Damian Johnson
- Dimitri Bird
- Jacob Bicknell
- John Chin
- Macoy Malcolm
- Nicholas Gore
- Randy Phillips
- Roger Lyn
We are excited about our 2019 Davis Cup campaign and looking forward to giving the team all the support we can to realise our goals.
