News from the tie


  • Australia after winning their tie against Chinese Taipei
  • Tie Summary

    Australia, the top seeds in Asia/Oceania Zone Group I for 2013, will be looking to maintain their perfect record against Chinese Taipei when the two sides meet in the first round in February.

    The men in gold have won all three of their previous encounters against Chinese Taipei, most recently with an emphatic 5-0 victory in Melbourne in 2010, without a certain Lleyton Hewitt in the team.

    For their part, Chinese Taipei will be hoping home advantage will play its part, just as it did in October's 2nd round relegation play-off against New Zealand, which the Taiwanese team won to retain their place in Zone Group I.

    Australia finds itself in Zone Group I for another year after falling to Germany in September's World Group play-offs. The Australians were 2-1 up after winning the doubles rubber, but couldn't find a way to clinch the decisive point.
