The India-Pakistan tie had initially been scheduled for September in Islamabad but after AITA wrote to ITF asking for the tie to be shifted to a neutral venue, the tie was rescheduled for November 29-30.
The ITF had taken the decision on November 4, paying heed to AITA's repeated requests for a neutral venue, which prompted the PTF's to challenge the move. In response, the ITF reached out to AITA on Monday.
The PTF President Salim Saifullah said the event-free opening of the Kartarpur corridor is a clear indicator that despite the ongoing diplomatic tensions, it is possible to host the Indian tennis team in Islamabad.
