Nigeria draws Morocco, Madagascar, 13 others in 2015 Davis Cup

The International Tennis Federation has placed Nigeria alongside the highly-rated Madagascar, Morocco and 13 others in the Africa Zone Group III at the 2016 edition of the Davis Cup tournament.

There were speculations that Nigeria would be penalised for making its withdrawal known to the world tennis ruling body a few days to the kick-off of the 2015 edition of the tournament held last year in Cairo, Egypt.

But with the conduct of the draw, it is clear that Nigeria may not be sanctioned after all.
However, Nigeria’s quest for promotion to Group II will continue again in 2016 as they are expected to battle Group II relegated sides, Madagascar and Morocco, and 13 others for places in the elite division.

According to ITTF, the 2016 edition of the Group III of the Africa Zone will hold on the clay courts of the Antanarivo University in Madagascar from July 13 to 16, with 16 teams aiming for the two promotion slots available.
