  • Tie Summary

    Germany and Australia are two nations that can boast excellent Davis Cup pedigrees and have met on a total of six occasions – although only two of those have been since 1938. Australia lead the head-to-head 4-2 but Germany can lay claim to the most important victory when they came out on top in the 1993 Final.

    The German side have been in the World Group since 2006 but find themselves at risk of a return to Europe/Africa Zone Group I having lost in their opening match against Argentina, 4-1. They failed to ever pose a threat to the visitors on that occasion as David Nalbandian helped secure victory inside the opening two days.

    Australia are 28-time champions in Davis Cup but have been absent from the World Group since being relegated to Serbia in 2007. They have lost in the play-offs three times since losing 3-2 on every occasion. They have reached this stage thanks to whitewash victories against China, P.R. and Korea, Rep. in Asia/Oceania Zone Group I.
