  • Tie Summary

    Somewhat surprisingly, Germany have only defeated Argentina once in the last 75 years. The Germans won the first meeting between the two nations in 1936, but they had to wait until 1991 before tasting success again. Argentina romped to a whitewash win in the most recent clash, in 2003, which extends their overall head-to-head advantage to 5-2.

    Germany will be hoping for a repeat of 12 months ago when they recorded a memorable fifth rubber victory over Croatia in the World Group first round, although they then slipped to defeat against France in the next round. The Germans are three-time Davis Cup champions with all their wins arriving during a dominant period in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

    Argentina, on the other hand, have never managed to lift the Davis Cup trophy despite reaching the Final on four occasions, including last season when they lost to Spain in Seville. This gives them the unwanted record of being the only Davis Cup nation to finish runner-up on four occasions without ever winning the title.
