Australia travels to France in its first World Group appearance since 2007. Both nations are two of the most successful teams in the history of the competition but neither side has laid its hands on the Davis Cup for a decade.
Last tie 13-15 September 2013
Australia ended its World Group play-off jinx with a 4-1 victory over Poland in Warsaw last September. The win sealed the Antipodean nation's spot in the top tier for the first time since 2007. The tie was sealed by Bernard Tomic's victory over Lukasz Kubot in the first of the reverse singles rubbers.
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.
