ITF upholds NZ victory in Myanmar

1:27 pm on 8 June 2013

The International Tennis Federation has upheld the outcome of Davis Cup tie between New Zealand and Pakistan in Myanmar in April.

The tie was abandoned because of an unplayable court and it was awarded to New Zealand.

The ITF upheld the decision of the Davis Cup Committee, who denied the appeal by the Pakistan Tennis Federation.

The board supported the Davis Cup Committee's view that the referee acted in accordance with the Davis Cup Regulations, and says their decision is final.
