  • Tie Summary

    Poland and South Africa have their first meeting in 10 years. Poland is looking to defeat South Africa for the first time in Davis Cup, having fallen on both previous occasions in 1935 and 2003. Their last meeting was decided in the doubles when Davis Adams and Robbie Koenig beat today’s doubles specialists and Grand Slam doubles finalists Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski.

    Poland are on a winning streak having won their last four ties – all on home soil. They will host again in their campaign to reach their first ever World Group play-off. Having slipped to Group II last year and battled back to Group I for 2013, Poland made a successful start to the year with a strong team consisting of Jerzy Janowicz, Lukas Kubot and Fyrstenberg/Matkowski. Janowicz sealed victory over Slovenia in the fourth rubber.

    South Africa competes for the first time in this year’s Davis Cup, having received a first round bye. Having emerged from the quagmire of Group III in 2007, South Africa has made great strides in reaching the World Group play-offs for the last four years. However they have been unable to break through to the elite sixteen on all of these occasions and last September fell to Canada 4-1 to remain in Group I.

    If South Africa wins this tie, Slovenia will play the loser of Great Britain v Russia in the 2nd Round play-off on 13-15 September. If Poland wins, South Africa will play Slovenia in the 1st Round Play-off on 13-15 September. The loser of that tie will play the loser of Great Britain v Russia in the 2nd Round play-off on 18-20 October.
