2019 saw a huge overhaul of the Davis Cup format with the event taking place over the course of a single week in November.
During that week, 18 teams compete for the title, 12 who have come through qualifying along with the previous year’s four semi-finalists and two wild cards.
Along with the format reforms, the prize money has also changed significantly with it reaching Grand Slam levels of player remuneration.
The big money on offer not only attracts top players, but it has also helped allay participating nations fears that they'd be losing out financially by no longer hosting home ties on their own soil as per the previous Davis Cup format.
For 2019 the total prize money fund is over €23,000,000 and is split between the players competing in the Davis Cup Finals and their National Associations.
The prize money pool awarded to the players for 2019 is €15.34 million euros with the Federations receiving a share of €7.68 million euros.
The winning players of the Davis Cup in 2019 will share €2,100,000 and their federation will receive €1,060,000.
