ITF Press Release, September 29, 2022
The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has announced the schedule for the 2022 Billie Jean King Cup by Gainbridge Finals, with 12 teams set to compete to be crowned world champions at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow on 8-13 November. Tickets are on sale now for the World Cup of Tennis event, which will see the very best women’s tennis players from across the globe come together to represent their nations.
The schedule sees a line-up of tantalising matches, including USA’s clash with Poland – which could see a rematch of this year’s Roland Garros final between Coco Gauff and Iga Swiatek – which will be played on Centre Court on the evening of Wednesday 9 November.
Four of the first five days will see ties in the morning session begin at 10:00 GMT with ties in the evening session not beginning before 16:00 GMT. On Friday 11 November, Armistice Day, play will begin just over one hour later to accommodate the two-minute silence at 11:00 GMT.
The semi-finals will both be played on Saturday 12 November (reverting back to 10:00 and 16:00 GMT start times) with the 2022 Billie Jean King Cup final to begin at 14:00 GMT on Sunday 13 November.
All ties will feature two singles matches followed by a doubles match. Singles matches will be played as best-of-three tiebreak sets, with doubles matches played with no-ad scoring and with a match tiebreak played as the third set.
David Haggerty, ITF President, said: “We are very much looking forward to this year’s Billie Jean King Cup Finals in Glasgow. The Billie Jean King Cup sees the world’s best women’s tennis players representing their nation and, together with the men’s Davis Cup, features a thrilling atmosphere unlike any other major professional tennis event. The schedule follows a very exciting announcement for the Billie Jean King Cup, with new official title sponsor Gainbridge supporting the goal of equivalent prize money for women and men in the World Cup of Tennis. We encourage fans to purchase their tickets and show their support in the crowd too.”
