Support lacking

DAVIS CUP hero Haydn Lewis has knocked Government for not doing enough to support tennis.

Minutes after his match-clinching Americas Zone Davis Cup triumph over Venezuela on Tuesday afternoon, Lewis said he felt that the lack of financial stimulus from Government was hurting the growth of tennis.

“Winning over Venezuela and gaining promotion to Group 1 is a huge deal given the lack of support for tennis from Government. We were in Group 1 for two years and we did not get any support from Government and as a result, it was very difficult to stay in that group.

“Without much support, we have managed to get back there and it just shows that we belong in that group, but to be realistic we are not going to stay in that group very long if we don’t get the support we need,” he said. (MK)
