Carla Suárez criticizes the new format of the Federation Cup

"Personally, I do not like it and I think it hurts us," said the Canarian tennis player after moving to the second round of Wimbledon.


The Spanish Carla Suarez criticized on Tuesday the new format of the Federation Cup, because it believes that it harms the Spanish team by forcing him to play the qualifying phase of February. This project, which will start in 2020, involves a new competition that will be played for a week in April with twelve countries. However, Spain, despite having achieved in 2019 the ticket to the World Group, will have to fight for its place in the qualifiers in February.

"I personally do not like it and I think it hurts us. Last year we made a huge effort to try to be in the World Group and it's as if it had not been worth anything", explained Gran Canaria, joining the argument that also wielded the captain, Anabel Medina, who assured Efe that Spain should be directly in the final tournament.

"We are back in February with the same countries and players who won the year It's something that does not really fit in. I'm not in favor of France and Australia already in the April phase We save a week, but I liked the previous format very much. No I agree, but you have to accept it and go play, "he added.

Suarez beat the first round of Wimbledon on Tuesday by beating Australia's Samantha Stosur. The Spanish will face the French Pauline Parmentier in second, after the gala defeated the Russian Maria Sharapova.
