Plans to revamp the Davis Cup could have big implications for tennis in China, according to the sport's global chief.

The International Tennis Federation wants to turn the 117-year-old tournament into a year-end showdown - renamed the World Cup of Tennis Finals - that would see 18 national teams compete in one location over seven days in November.

On Wednesday, American billionaire Larry Ellison, who owns the Indian Wells tennis venue in California, threw his weight behind the proposals, which were devised by Kosmos, a company owned by Barcelona soccer star Gerard Pique and which has pledged to pump $3 billion into the tournament over 25 years.
