Davis Cup team will not go to Pakistan

KARACHI: Tennis New Zealand says the Davis Cup team will not play in Pakistan in July due to security concerns

Tennis New Zealand will not send its Davis Cup team to Pakistan for July''s Asia Oceania semi-final tie.

TNZ has asked the International Federation to move the tie either here, or a neutral venue due to security concerns in Pakistan.

Operations manager Tracey Hall says although Pakistan shifted its last tie to Hong Kong, it may not be as accommodating this time. She expects the ITF to make a decision on the venue for the tie later this month.

New Zealand last played Pakistan in 2004 and lost 4-1, a result which sent New Zealand to its current lowly position in Asia Oceania group two.
