Davis Cup trophy to go on show at exhibition of Mucha posters owned by Lendl

The Davis Cup trophy is to be displayed at Prague’s Obecní Dům (Municipal House) for seven days starting April 29 at an exhibition of posters by Alfons Mucha that is owned by former world number one Ivan Lendl, who was part of the Czechoslovak team which won the competition in 1980. Lendl is coming to Prague to inspect the exhibition, which comprises the world’s most complete collection of the poster work of the great Czech Art Nouveau painter, at the end of the month. Over 18,000 people have seen it since it opened to the public less than two weeks ago.
