A massive blow for South Korea ahead of this week's Davis Cup tie against New Zealand in Auckland.

It's two best players Hyeon Chung and Duckhee Lee have not travelled with the team due to injuries and loss of form.

Chung is ranked 92 in the world and one of the youngest players inside the top 100.

His and Lee's absence hands favouritism to the Kiwis with the top Korean player now 19-year-old Soo Woo Kwon who is ranked 234.
