Difficult Davis Cup draw for NZ in India

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 22/09/2016

A demanding trip to India awaits New Zealand in February following an unfavourable Davis Cup draw.

India, seeded second in Asia Oceania group one zone, will host the Kiwis on February 3-5. A venue is still to be determined.

New Zealand retained their spot on group by whitewashing Pakistan 5-0 in a relegation tie in Christchurch last week.

They face a stiff challenge to overcome India, who have been relegated from the World Group after losing to Spain.

India earned their place in the World Group in 2015 by beating New Zealand 3-2 in Christchurch.

India are 19th in the overall Davis Cup rankings while New Zealand are 31st.
