There will be no late change to captain Alistair Hunt's plans after hearing Korea's top two players are missing this week's Davis Cup tennis tie in Auckland.

Hunt originally picked New Zealand's top ranked doubles player Michael Venus for the singles believing he would have a better chance of success against top 100 ranked Hyeon Chung and number two Duckhee Lee.

Despite facing a weaker side than expected, Hunt says the mind set remains the same.

Hunt says with Marcus Daniel and Artem Sitak they're a great team so are cemented in the doubles side and Michael Venus will be more suited to one of the singles slots.

Venus and Rubin Statham will play the singles with Marcus Daniell and Artem Sitak to team up for the doubles.

The draw is this morning.
