The Davis Cup draw has been made for New Zealand's home tie against South Korea.

Rubin Statham will play the first singles rubber against Korean number two Hong Seong Chan, with Michael Venus to face Kwon Soon Woo.

Captain Alistair Hunt says Statham and Hong are familiar with each other, having endured a long match in Seoul last year.

He says it was a four match, with the players so exhausted by the end that it became a comedy of errors.

The first match is tomorrow morning in Auckland.
