ITF POSTPONES DAVIS CUP TIE BETWEEN INDIA-PAKISTAN TO NOVEMBER
23 August 2019
In a big relief to the Indian tennis team, the International Tennis
Federation (ITF) has postponed the Davis Cup tie against Pakistan to a later date in November.
The Asia/Oceania Group I tie was to be held in Islamabad on 14-15 September but the rising escalation of tension between the two neighbouring countries forced both the Indian team and the All-India Tennis Federation to seek security assurance before travelling for the tie.
Yesterday's announcement was in total contrast to ITF's position last week when they said that the tie was on schedule as it was satisfied with the security situation in Pakistan.
