Next tie 2016
After five straight years in Group III, Malaysia will go up a tier next year and play in Asia/Oceania Zone Group II.
Last tie 25-28 March 2015
Delighting their fans at home, Malaysia edged two three-set singles rubbers against Turkmenistan to earn promotion to Zone Group II for 2016. The Malaysians dominated the round-robin stage, sealing easy wins over Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and a harder-fought 2-1 victory over Hong Kong. That meant they topped Pool A and faced Pool B runners-up Turkmenistan in a promotion play-off. Mohd Merzuki and Syed Syed Naguib fended off their opponents in the singles contests to seal a 2-0 win for Malaysia and a spot in Group II.
Malaysia have reached the Asia/Oceania Zone Group II second round on three occasions, in 1992, 2000 and 2001. They first played Davis Cup in 1957.
