Next tie 31 January-2 February 2014
Argentina will host Italy in the World Group first round in 2014. The South Americans won the only previous meeting between the two nations 5-0 in 1983.
Last tie 13-15 September 2013
Argentina came up short against an in-form Czech Republic team that needed just two players to win all three points in the World Group semifinals in September. The Argentines salvaged some respect by winning both the dead rubbers on Sunday to make the final score line 3-2 to the Czechs.
Argentina finished runners-up in 1981, 2006, 2008 and 2011, but are yet to lift the trophy. Only Argentina, Romania and India have contested more than one Final without being crowned champion, but Argentina are the only of these nations to have lost four times.
