There's one new face in the New Zealand Davis Cup tennis team for next month's Asia Oceania zone Group One tie against Korea in Seoul.

Kiwi number one Finn Tearney has been picked for the first time, replacing doubles specialist Marcus Daniell with captain Alistair Hunt wanting to have three singles options.

Tearney is over the moon with his call up.

He says every since he's played tennis he wanted to be in the Davis Cup team and it's been tough to get in because the team's been really good.


Tearney joins Rubin Statham, Michael Venus and Artem Sitak in the squad.

Meanwhile doubles players Daniell and Sitak are through to the second round at the ATP tournament in Memphis.

The pair have beaten an American wildcard pairing 2-6, 6-3 and 10-5 in the Super Tiebreak.
