Davis Cup: Pakistan’s top tennis players boycott India tie

0

Pakistan‘s top tennis players have boycotted a controversial Davis Cup tennis tie against India in protest against the fixture being moved outside of the host country, Pakistan.

The two-day Asia/Oceania Group I fixture kicks off on Friday in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan – a neutral venue chosen by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), citing security concerns in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad.

Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) had appealed against the ITF’s decision to move the tie earlier this month, which was dismissed last week, prompting its senior players, Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Aqeel Khan, to pull out.
