Pakistan hopes Davis Cup tie will be restarted
Pakistan hopes to restart their Davis Cup tie against NZ in an appeal to the International Tennis Federation against awarding the match to NZ this month.
Islamabad: Pakistan hopes to restart their Davis Cup tie against New Zealand in an appeal to the International Tennis Federation against awarding the match to New Zealand this month.
Pakistan was up 1-0 and leading the second singles at Yangon, Myanmar, when Sri Lankan referee Ashita Ajigala declared the grass-court unplayable and ruled the Asia-Oceania Group II tie in New Zealand's favor.
Waqar Yousuf, the secretary of the Pakistan Tennis Federation, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that by next week he hopes the ITF will finalize a date for their appeal hearing.
Pakistan player Aisamul Haq went to London last week and presented Pakistan's point of view to ITF officials. Yousuf says the PTF wants the tie to restart with the second singles.
