HA NOI (VNS)— The national tennis team yesterday left for the UAE to take part in the Davis Cup's Asia/Oceania Zone Group III after two weeks of intensive training.

The group, which also includes Iran, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Oman, Malaysia, Pacific, Malaysia and the host, will be divided into two pools.

The draw is to be organised tomorrow, while the matches are expected to start on Wednesday.

The top two nations in each pool will be promoted to Asia/Oceania Zone Group II for 2014, while the bottom two nations will be relegated to Group IV. Viet Nam's five athletes and their coach, Michael Baroch – the former trainer of previous world No 1 Maria Sharapova – are targeting maintaining their current position. — VNS
