Next tie 12-14 September 2014
Spain will have to compete in the World Group play-offs for a second consecutive year, and have been handed an away tie against Brazil. Gustavo Kuerten starred in a Brazillian victory the last time these teams met, back in 1999, but it is Spain which leads the head-to-head record with five wins to Brazil's two.
Last tie 31 January-2 February 2014
Spain fell in the first round for the second consecutive year, this time suffering a humbling defeat away in Germany. After Philipp Kohlschreiber had comfortably beaten Davis Cup debutant Roberto Bautista Agut, Feliciano Lopez was unable to complete a stunning comeback, running out of steam in the fifth set against Florian Mayer, after having lost the opening two sets. Kohlschreiber then paired with Tommy Haas to win the doubles in four sets, sending Spain to the World Group play-offs once again.
Spain have dominated Davis Cup over the last decade, winning five times in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2009 and 2011. Their victory in 2011 came after an enthralling 3-1 defeat of Argentina in the Final in Seville. They also finished runner-up in 1965, 1967, 2003 and 2012.
