Pakistan tennis has received yet another setback after the International Tennis Federation (ITF) decided to disallow it a Davis Cup tie against Hong Kong at home in March. According to reports, an ITF security official who visited Pakistan submitted a negative report on the security arrangements in the country after which the game's ruling committee decided against hosting the tie in Pakistan. A top official of the Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) said the Davis Cup Asia Oceania Group II will now be played in Hong Kong. "The ITF has shifted the tie to Hong Kong after the security officer Ian Todd was not satisfied with the security arrangements and feared for players safety," PTF secretary Mumtaz Yousaf was quoted in the Express Tribune. Todd visited Lahore in October to assess the security arrangements for holding the Davis Cup matches. He visited different clubs and met various sports officials during the visit.
