  • Tie Summary

    China, P.R. overcame a spirited New Zealand team in a series of tough matches, and progress to the second round with a chance of making the World Group play-offs later this year. Di Wu and Ze Zhang both won opening day singles rubbers, but it was no simple task for either of them, with Wu being pushed to a fifth set by Michael Venus and Zhang edging four close sets against Jose Statham. A straight sets victory for New Zealand in the doubles kept the tie alive, and it seemed very much as if the tie would go all the way when Statham took the first two sets against Wu. However, the Chinese bounced back superbly, gaining the edge in each of the remaining sets to achieve a memorable comeback victory and send his nation through to the next round.
