31 Jan - 02 Feb 2014, Hørsholm-Rungsted Tennisklub, Copenhagen, Denmark, Hard, Indoor
Hørsholm-Rungsted Tennisklub in Copenhagen will be the venue for Cyprus' visit to Denmark in the first round in 2014. This will be the first time that the nations have met in a Davis Cup tie.
Denmark will be looking to bounce straight back to Zone Group I, having been relegated at the end of 2013 in a dramatic 2-3 loss to Sweden. Despite being 2-0 up at the end of the first day, the Danes could not finish the tie, with Swedish pair of Johan Brunstrom and Robert Lindstedt winning the doubles, before Markus Eriksson and Elias Ymer were able to beat Frederik Nielsen and Elias Ymer respectively, to complete the comeback. Denmark must now compete in Zone Group II for the first time since 2011.
After a 1-4 defeat by Lithuania in the first round of 2013, Cyprus won a relegation play-off against Benin to remain in Zone Group II for a ninth consecutive year. After evenly splitting the first four rubbers, Petros Chrysochos thrashed Benin's Magloire Yakpa 61 61 60 to seal the tie for the Cypriot team.
