LONDON - Israel's Davis Cup tie against Argentina next month has been moved to Sunrise, Florida, because of the conflict in Gaza.

The International Tennis Federation says on Friday the neutral venue was proposed by the Israel Tennis Association.

The World Group playoff from Sept. 12-14 will be on an outdoor hard-court at the Sunrise Tennis Club.

The ITF ruled last week that the match, originally scheduled for Tel Aviv, could not be played in Israel because of the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

The ITF board rejected Israel's appeal on Tuesday. The ITF gave Israel until Thursday to nominate a neutral venue.
