After famous and historical cricket clash between India and Pakistan, now this time both rival teams will face each other in tennis court after thirteen years, during the Davis Cup Asia Oceania Group-I tie in September this year. The Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) announced the clash in a press release on Wednesday (June 26).
The tie will be played on a grass-court at the Pakistan Sports Complex in Pakistan. This is will be the first time after 13 years that the two Asian arch-rivals, whose cricketing encounters draw millions of viewers, will face each other on a tennis court. The last time Pakistan and India played each other was in April 2006, when Mumbai played the role of the host.
According to Indian media reports, Indian Davis Cup team is likely to travel to Pakistan after 55 years with the national tennis federation AITA hinting that the central government will allow the players to compete against the neighbouring country in September.
