Cape Town - Tennis South Africa (TSA) on Wednesday confirmed it received a letter of resignation from Davis Cup captain John-Laffnie de Jager.
“TSA accepted his decision to leave with immediate effect and would like to thank him for his nine years of dedication to TSA and South African tennis. We further wish him all the best for the future,” TSA said via a statement.
“With regard to claims made in his letter to the TSA board, council and ‘open letter’ to the media, TSA will respond after the issue has been discussed by the board. Our president and acting Chief Executive Officer, Gavin Crookes is currently out of the country and a meeting will be convened as soon as he returns. A detailed reply will be formulated later this month.”
TSA said its first priority is now to find a replacement captain for the upcoming Davis Cup tie against Turkey on the weekend of March 6-8.
