Davis Cup age record broken in San Marino

Davis Cup isn’t just Madrid. It goes all the way down to Group IV, European zone.

And on Wednesday, Domenico Vicini became the oldest man to win a Davis Cup rubber. He defeated Genc Selita of Kosovo 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.


Vicini turns 48 Sept. 1. 

Selita is 21.

Vicini returned with 22-year-old Marco de Rossi to win the deciding doubles

San Marino, a microstate with a population of 35,000, has been competing since 1993.

It’s Vicini’s 96th tie.

He played a few satellites in the mid-90s, and got some wild cards into the now-defunct ATP stop there.

But Davis Cup has been his tennis career.
