Australian tennis wants their Davis Cup tie against India be moved out of the country due to security concerns.

India, however, remain confident of staging the May event saying the Australian players will be guaranteed full security.

The May 8 - 10 tie is to be played in the southern city of Chennai, considered a safe city.

Australian tennis boss Steve Wood says the decision to ask for the tie to be moved followed advice from a number of sources.
