World Group action starts in


10 June 2014

Contenders clear after two days in Tehran


After two days in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Asia/Oceania Zone Group IV event, there are two teams in each pool who are looking likely to contend the promotion play-offs at the end of the week.

Top seeds Pacific Oceania lead the way in Pool A following a 3-0 win against Kyrgyzstan on Monday and a 2-1 victory over Bangladesh on Tuesday.

Jordan also have a faultless record in Pool A and are behind Pacific Oceania only because they have won fewer sets. Jordan defeated Bangladesh 3-0 on the opening day before overcoming Iraq 2-1 on Tuesday.

Pacific Oceania and Jordan are scheduled to meet on Wednesday in what could be the crucial tie in Pool A.

Second seeds Qatar head Pool B after two days of play, having put in perfect performances against Mongolia and Oman (including dropping just two games in six sets against the latter on Tuesday).

Saudi Arabia sit in second place in Pool B with a 3-0 win against Oman and a 2-1 victory over Bahrain. Just like in Pool A, Wednesday’s clash between Qatar and Saudi Arabia will be one to watch.
