The Tie is being held from Friday 16 September to Sunday 18 September, indoors at Z Energy Wilding Park. Kiwi Olympians Michael Venus and Marcus Daniell ranked 41 and 58 respective in the world for doubles have been named alongside Finn Tearney ranked 381, Rubin Statham at 444 in singles. If Statham takes the court he will beat Onny Parun’s New Zealand Davis Cup record of the most ties played for his country of 25 ties. It is likely Pakistan will select their doubles expert Aisam Qureshi who is 36-years-old and ranked 48th in doubles. Aqeel Khan is another likely veteran who should be selected. New Zealand lead Pakistan 3-1 in head-to-head clashes. The last time the two sides clashed it was a 4-1 win for New Zealand in Myanmar in 2013 which was abandoned. Christchurch has been the home of Davis Cup ties since 2014, with a win against Chinese Taipei in 2014 and a close 3-2 loss to India in the 2015 semi-finals. Tennis Canterbury is extremely excited to host yet another Davis Cup tie for the third consecutive year. This is a return to the glory days that has seen Tennis Canterbury host numerous Davis Cup ties against some of the superpower of world tennis. Z Energy Wilding Park is one of the oldest sport venues still in operation in all of Canterbury. It has played host to Davis Cup matches as far back as the 1910’s and 20’s. Much like many of Christchurch’s other most important sporting facilities Wilding Park was severely impacted by the Christchurch Earthquake impacted in both September 2009 and February 2010. The rebuilding process has been a long one. Mixed emotions were felt at the demolition of the iconic Memorial Stands, host to numerous Davis Cup Tie and other International Tennis Federation events. However it was also the first bit of tangible progress in relation to the redevelopment of Wilding Park and proved to generate some real excitement amongst the tennis community. Strengthening work on the facility’s structural steel and refurbishment of the administration and function space erased any signs of the earthquake damage and provided the wider community with some great function space. The final stage of development will see the reinstatement of six additional outdoor courts, the development of a grassy embankment for spectator viewing and social spaces, including a barbeque area. The facility will continue to be available to the local communities, including school, charitable organisations and, in some cases, other sports outside of normal hours. The final stage of development work is scheduled to be gin in the coming month with a completion date of mid November, just in time for the Summer of Tennis. This development will allow Canterbury to again host National Age Group events, International Events and, of course, future Summer Davis Cup ties. This year’s Davis Cup tie is a three day event. Two singles will be played on Friday, doubles on Saturday and the two reverse singles on Sunday. Matches are the best of five sets. Tickets and Corporate Boxes are available.
