Uzbekistan must travel to Australia as it attempts to reach the World Group for the first time. These two sides last met in an Asia/Oceania Zone Group I tie in 2013, from which Australia emerged victorious after Bernard Tomic won both of his singles rubbers to secure a 3-1 win.
Australia will be looking to bounce back from the 5-0 thrashing delivered by a high-quality French team in February. By their own high standards, the Australians, normally such a strong Davis Cup force, have struggled in recent years. They will be desperate to spend consecutive seasons in the World Group for the first time since 2006/7. Uzbekistan squeezed past China, P.R. to reach this stage, having to rely on a five set win by Farrukh Dustov in the deciding rubber to progress.
