  • Tie Summary

    The only tie between the two nations in the last 50 years ended in a 5-0 home win for the Spanish in the World Group first round in 2003. Overall, Spain leads Belgium 2-1 in their head-to-head series.

    Belgium secured its place in Davis Cup’s top tier by coming from behind to defeat Australia 3-2 in the World Group play-offs in Perth. With Lleyton Hewitt sidelined through injury, Olivier Rochus and Steve Darcis recorded singles wins on the final day to overturn a 1-2 deficit.

    Spain, having established itself as Davis Cup’s dominant force in the 2000s by winning the title four times, endured a disappointing campaign in 2010, losing to France 5-0 in the World Group quarterfinals in Clermont-Ferrand. It was a first whitewash defeat for the Spaniards in over 50 years.
