  • Tie Summary

    France travels to Austria with an unbeaten record against the hosts. The two nations have met on seven occasions, most recently in 2000 when France won 5-0 in the World Group play-offs in Rennes.

    After relegation ended a six-year stay in the World Group, Austria scored an immediate return to the elite 16 in 2010. Gilbert Schaller’s team defeated Israel 3-2 away in the World Group play-offs, with Jurgen Melzer and Martin Fischer winning the singles rubbers on the final day to overturn a 1-2 deficit.

    France goes into this tie as the runner-up from 2010, having lost to Serbia 3-2 in the Final at Belgrade Arena. The visitors led 2-1 going into the last day's play but wins for Novak Djokovic and Viktor Troicki turned the scoreline around in favour of the hosts.
