With 71% of ITF representative ves, Pique's proposal goes on starting in 2019.
18 countries playing during one week in one city. 4 countries will be the semifinalists from the previous year, 2 countries wild carded and 12 countries from the qualifing round.
Clearly, a more interesting model for an old fashioned tournament. Gerard Piqué defended the prosopal in behalf of his company Kosmos with companies as Rakuten, Hiroshi Mikitani and Oracle, backing the initiative.
