New Zealand to host Davis Cup tie

2:09 pm on 16 March 2010

New Zealand will now host their Davis Cup tennis tie against Pakistan in July.

New Zealand was to play the second round Asia/Oceania tie in Pakistan, however continued security concerns have led the International Tennis Federation to overturn the usual hosting schedule and the tie will now be played in New Zealand, at a venue still to be decided.

Tennis New Zealand will now be looking for a suitable venue for the tie.

The venue will be confirmed by April.
