Tennis Vlaanderen president Dirk de Maeseneer said in a statement: "Ghent will fully support the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Final.

"As the third biggest city in Belgium, it has a lot of experience in hosting top international events, such as the Tour of Flanders, the arrival of the Tour de France in 2007 and the Gymnastics World Championships in 2001 and 2013."

Will Great Britain end 79 years of heart by beating Belgium?
