Daily Bagel: Davis Cup needs no fixing

Tuesday December 6th, 2011

The Daily Bagel is your dose of the interesting reporting, writing and quipping from around the Internet.

• In the above video, Rafael Nadal pranks 'Daveed' Ferrer, with marginal success.

• A good take on why people should stop whining about the Davis Cup format and leave it be.

• Peter Bodo looks at the history of Davis Cup and argues that we can't compare eras.

• Yes, Great Britain has a Fed Cup team (shock! horror!). And Judy Murray may be in line to coach it.

• This is unfortunate on all accounts: Flavia Pennetta's mother has been sentenced to one year in jail for the unintentional death of a worker on their family farm. (Note: The original article in Italian was run through Google Translate.)

• Ana Ivanovic puts the kibosh on any talk of a couples rivalry with 'Wozzilroy.' Glad we got that sorted!
