2013 champions Czech Republic play host to World Group new boys Netherlands in the first round in 2014. The Czechs take a 4-1 head-to-head record into the tie with the Dutch team's only victory coming nearly 90 years ago in 1925.
The Czechs, now unbeaten in nine consecutive Davis Cup ties, have not lost on home soil since suffering a huge upset against Kazakhstan in the first round in 2011.
Netherlands cruised to a 5-0 victory over Austria in September's World Group play-offs, earning their place in the competition's top flight for the first time since 2009. That year they fell in the first round to Argentina. The last time the Dutch won a World Group tie was in 2005 against Switzerland.
