Islamabad: Pakistan will take its fight for an appeal against awarding a Davis Cup tie to New Zealand due to an unplayable grass court as far as it can.

A day after the Davis Cup committee rejected a request for a hearing, the Pakistan Tennis Federation said on Wednesday it will appeal the decision to the International Tennis Federation's board of directors.

"It's a disappointing decision," PTF secretary Mumtaz Yousuf said. "We will definitely file an appeal in due course."
