Australia travelled to Uzbekistan knowing that a win would see it through to the World Group play-off. With the tie evenly poised at 1-1 after the first day, the doubles would be crucial. Australian stalwart Lleyton Hewitt partnered Matt Ebden to win a gruelling 5-set match and hand Australia the advantage, before Bernard Tomic won his second rubber of the weekend to see Australia through.
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.
