  • Tie Summary

    It will be the first meeting between Austria and Kazakhstan when they take each other on in the first round of the 2013 Davis Cup World Group. It will be Kazakhstan to host the tie as the winners of the choice of ground decided by lot.

    Kazakhstan are making their third straight appearance in the World Group thanks to victory over neighbouring Uzbekistan in the play-offs. They were forced to fight for their place in the elite group having been defeated 5-0 by Spain in the first round.

    Austria made it to the World Group quarterfinals for the first time in 17 years when they beat Russia in the first round last year only to then fall to defeat against Spain on the clay of Marina d’Or with Oliver Marach and Alexander Peya scoring their only point of the tie.
