  • Tie Summary

    Australia travel to Poland desperate to return to the World Group. They may be the second most successful nation in Davis Cup history but they haven't been in the top tier of the competition since 2007. Poland, on the other hand, are in their first ever World Group play-off and will be looking to reach the top tier of the competition for the first time.

    Poland reached the play-off after a 3-1 victory over South Africa. They boast a Top 25 player in Jerzy Janowicz as well as a formidable doubles pair in the form of Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski.

    Australia have faced little difficulty in reaching this year's World Group play-off, defeating Chinese Taipei 5-0 then Uzbekistan 3-1. Bernard Tomic, recalled to the team for the last round, won both of his matches in Uzbekistan and is considered one of the top young players on the tour. The inspirational Lleyton Hewitt, Australia's best Davis Cup player, is also still involved.
