  • Tie Summary

    A ninth meeting for these two nations in a series dating back to 1990, which is the only year in which Kuwait hosted Syria. Kuwait won their first four meetings but Syria has been victorious in their last four. Both nations are in Group II for the first time in years so this relegation play-off tie has crucial implications.

    Syria returned to Group II for only the second time in 12 years this year, but had a tough start in losing to Philippines inside two days in February’s opening round. Syria hasn’t spent consecutive years in Group II since 1991 so they have all to play for.

    Kuwait is back in Group II after four years but faces relegation after losing to Thailand in a dramatic opening round encounter in February. Abdullah Maqdas’s bid to force a deciding fifth rubber fell short after he was forced to retire with a foot injury, handing Thailand overall victory. The tie had seen two five-set matches on Friday and a lengthy doubles match on Saturday.
