The Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Asia/Oceania Zone Group II tie between Thailand and Hong Kong has been rearranged to take place on the weekend of 14-16 February on the indoor hard courts of the Thanyapura Sports and Leisure Club in Phuket.

The tie had originally been scheduled to take place this coming weekend.

Elsewhere the action got underway in Asia/Oceania Zone Group I as the action between China, P.R. and New Zealand began on Monday. The tie has been moved forward to avoid clashing with the Chinese New Year.

Wu Di got the hosts off to a strong start coming out on top in a back-and-forth tussle against Michael Venus in five sets, 36 76(4) 62 16 63.

The lead was doubled in the second rubber thanks to Zhang Ze who came from a set down to beat Jose Statham, 67(5) 63 64 64, and put China within one rubber of a place in the second round against Uzbekistan.

Tomorrow’s doubles rubber is set to see Gong Mao-Xin and Li Zhe face Marcus Daniell and Michael Venus.
