Nueva Zelanda se verá lascaras con Uruguay en Las Vegas

New Zealand face Uruguay in Las Vegas

Tennis New Zealand has confirmed that its local Davis Cup World Group I tie will take place at the Darling Tennis Center in Las Vegas from March 4-5. Due to New Zealand’s Govt-19, the neutral host country was required to close the border compulsorily for non-citizens.

Playing in the United States is New Zealand’s second home tie in a row since New Zealand’s most recent match took place at the International Tennis Hall of Fame on Rhode Island in September.

New Zealand Tennis High Performance Director Christoph Lambert said: “It is disappointing to miss the opportunity to play in the local crowd again.” We hope this will be the last time, but Las Vegas will be the best place to host Uruguay.

. The Darling Tennis Center is a fantastic ground and we hope some Kiwi players from the area will come out and support us. “

Many players are already in the United States in line for the New Zealand team selection, competing in professional events or college rounds. The New Zealand squad for the event will be announced later in February, and Kelly Everton, who was appointed to the role earlier this month, will be the captain for the first time.
