The USTA National Campus has been selected as the host for the next three Junior Davis Cup and Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Finals beginning in 2019. It will be the first time the international 16-and-under world team competitions will be held in the United States since 1994.
This will be the third major international event held in the Lake Nona area of Orlando, joining the ITF Super-Seniors World Championships held last year, and the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters scheduled for November.
The event has been held in Budapest, Hungary each of the past two years, where the U.S. Junior Fed Cup team secured its second consecutive title last week. The competition includes 16 nations on both the boys’ and girls’ sides, competing first in round-robin groups, then in a knockout bracket to determine the winner.
The U.S. has won five Junior Fed Cup titles (2008, 2012, 2014, 2017-18) and three Junior Davis Cup titles (1999, 2008, 2014). Former U.S. junior international team members include Jim Courier, Andy Roddick, James Blake, Lindsay Davenport, and Sloane Stephens. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic also have also represented their respective countries in the junior international team competition.
