<i> Associated Press</i>

The International Tennis Federation announced today that the Davis Cup match between the United States and Mexico has been postponed because of security reasons connected with the Gulf War.

Thomas Hallberg, the ITF’s director of men’s tennis, said the United States Tennis Assn. was concerned about its players’ safety and had called for the postponement of the opening-round series.

Scheduled for Feb. 1-3 in Mexico City, the best-of-five event has been put back until March 29-31, along with seven others also considered security risks.
