  • Tie Summary

    There is nothing to split these two sides in terms of previous meetings. Both teams have won three ties each and the last two encounters have been won by the side playing at home.

    Denis Istomin and Farrukh Dustov will be gunning for revenge having been part of the Uzbek team that lost to China in Zone Group I in 2010. And having tasted defeat to Kazakhstan in the World Group play-offs in their last outing the Uzbekistan team will be keen to go one better in 2013.

    The team from China P.R. secured their place in Asia/Oceania Zone Group I for another year after defeating their local rivals, Chinese Taipei, in a thrilling tie.

    Di Wu was the star performer, winning both his singles rubbers against higher-ranked opposition, including the decisive fifth rubber, but the Chinese know they face a tough task if they are to upset Uzebekistan on their own patch.
