  • Tie Summary

    This is the first meeting between these two nations with very contrasting histories in Davis Cup.

    Ukraine had a tough first round tie on its return to Group I this year, having to pull victory from Slovak Republic in the decisive fifth rubber. Having only fielded Alexandr Dolgopolov and Sergiy Stakhovsky all weekend, Illya Marchenko was called up for the final rubber and sealed the win.

    Ukraine started its Davis Cup career in 1993 in Group III and has since alternated between Group I and II, reaching just one World Group play-off in this time in 2009.

    Since the introduction of the World Group in 1981, Sweden has only been out of it twice – in 2000 and this year. It earned a first round bye for this year’s rare Group I appearance so it’s competing for the first time since September, when it found itself relegated after losing 5-0 to Belgium in the World Group play-off.

    If Ukraine wins this tie, Sweden will play Slovak Republic in the 1st Round play-off on 13-15 September. The loser of that tie will play the 2nd Round play-off on 18-20 October. If Sweden wins, Slovak Republic must wait for other results in Zone Group I before finding out its next opponent.
