  • Tie Summary

    Spain continues their title defence on home soil when they face Austria, a nation they have traditionally struggled against. Spain have won just once in four previous meetings and were firmly beaten by a Thomas Muster-led team in the most recent of these, a first round encounter in 1995.

    This, however, is arguably one of the greatest Spanish teams of all time with amazing strength in depth. A first round win over Kazakhstan, without top players Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer, marked a 22nd consecutive home victory, a Davis Cup World Group record, and they have shown little sign of allowing the run to end.

    Austria is making an appearance in the quarterfinals for the first time in 17 years, which coincidentally they reached by beating Spain. Jurgen Melzer, who has carried the Austrian team for a number of years, was the difference maker in a 3-2 first round victory over Russia that also marked Captain Clemens Trimmel’s first taste of Davis Cup.
