Forde: Decision to host tie paid off

WHAT’S THE COST OF VICTORY? Try about $330 000.

Barbados Tennis Association president Dr Raymond Forde still believes it’s worth it – even after revealing that each tie costs his executive $110 000 to host – as Barbados used their favourable home court conditions to remain in the Davis Cup Americas Group I.

Forde said the result justified the decision to stage this latest tie against Uruguay after Barbados nearly forfeited the right to host because of the debt racked up by two previous ties this year.

“One does feel justified over the decision, and by staying in Group I it gives Darian [King] stiffer competition as he looks to get in the top 100 by next year,” said Forde.
