Next tie 16-18 September 2016
Australia will compete in a World Group play-off in September.
Last tie 4-6 March 2016
Australia slipped to a difficult home defeat against USA in Lleyton Hewitt's first tie as captain. After wins for Bernard Tomic and John Isner left the tie even, Bob and Mike Bryan resisted a fightback from Hewitt and John Peers to put the Americans ahead and Isner defeated Tomic on day three to win the tie.
Australia is second only to the Americans on the all-time list of Davis Cup champions, having won the title 28 times. In 1939, when facing USA, it produced the only successful comeback from 2-0 down in a Final. Between 1905 and 1922, Aussie players represented Australasia, which was a combined Australia-New Zealand team.
