World Group action starts in

World Group Play-off

The deadline for official team nominations is 10 days before the tie begins.

Tie preview

Spain will play its second consecutive World Group play-off tie away in Brazil in September. This will be the eighth time that these nations have faced each other, but the first meeting for fifteen years, when Gustavo Kuerten inspired Brazil to a 3-2 victory. Spain lead the overall head-to-head record 5-2.

The Brazilians recorded a fairly comfortable win over Ecuador to make the World Group play-offs, with Rogerio Dutra Silva victorious in both of his singles rubbers, while Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares won the doubles for the loss of just five games. They will certainly face a much tougher tie against Spain, which, despite losing to a strong Germany team in the World Group first round this year, has been the dominant force in Davis Cup by BNP Paribas over the last decade, winning four titles since 2004.
