Next tie 2016
Austria missed out on an opportunity to play for World Group promotion and thus remain in Zone Group I for 2016.
Last tie 17-19 July 2015
An out-of-form Dominic Thiem was beaten twice by lower-ranked players as Austria let a golden chance to reach the World Group play-offs slip by. Thiem lost a tight opening rubber to Thiemo De Bakker in five sets and then was defeated in the tie's fourth rubber to give Netherlands their required three points. In between those matches, Andreas Haider-Maurer had got the hosts on level terms at the end of day one's play and the Dutch triumphed in Saturday's doubles.
Austria's best Davis Cup performance came in 1990, when they were semifinalists. On that occasion, they came within one set of reaching the Final, but eventually lost to USA 3-2.
