(AP) -- The Davis Cup is getting a radical overhaul in hopes of reviving an event that has lost some luster.

Beginning next year, the top team event in men's tennis will be decided with a season-ending, 18-team tournament at a neutral site, creating an event that the International Tennis Federation believes will be more attractive to elite players who have often passed on competing for their countries while already facing a crowded schedule.

Teams will play one week in February to advance to the championship in November, replacing the current Davis Cup format that is played over four weekends throughout the year.
