Ecuador will travel to Barbados to attempt to retain their Americas Zone Group I status for 2016.
Last tie 17-19 July 2015
Ecuador were defeated 3-2 by Victor Estrella Burgos and Dominican Republic. Estrella Burgos won an enthralling opening rubber, coming from a two sets to one down to fight past Ivan Endara. Gonzalo Escobar levelled the tie though after the first day. Estrella Burgos teamed up with Jose Hernandez-Fernandez to win the doubles, before winning his second singles rubber of the weekend to clinch a World Group play-off birth for his country and force Ecuador to fend off relegation.
Ecuador was a quarterfinalist in 1985 and - prior to the introduction of the World Group - it won the American Zone in 1967, but lost in the Inter Zonal semifinals. Nicolas Lapentti holds the record for the most number of five-set singles wins in the competition, with 13.
