Top 5 Tennis Players Who Have Won The Most Davis Cups

The Davis Cup is the premier international team event in men's tennis. It is run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and is contested annually.

Davis Cups

There are many incredible tennis players out there, we have seen legends come from every country around the world who have the skill to be absolute legends on the court. However, some do stand high above others, there is no doubt.

Both the women’s and the men’s world of tennis has its kings and queens. These legends often shift the tennis odds when they are on the court, and any opponent they face is automatically the underdog.

These are the players that keep the game hot, you have to have legendary players, it's just so exciting, you never know what will happen next.

But what can we say, there is just something so powerful about a player who has a horde of Davis Cup titles beneath their belt that screams victory. It's like the tennis version of a UFC championship fight.

Whoever wins is the crowned king or queen.

But, if we are looking for the legends, we need to wonder, who’s won the most Davis Cups?
