Next tie 15-17 July 2016
Netherlands' campaign to return to the World Group begins with an away tie in Russia in July.
Last tie 18-20 September 2015
Netherlands put up an admirable challenge against the might of Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka's Switzerland but were ultimately beaten 4-1 in Geneva. Thiemo de Bakker gave Wawrinka an almighty scare in the first rubber, as he led by two sets-to-one but was edged out in five. De Bakker and Matwe Middelkoop scored the only Dutch win of the weekend in an electric five-set doubles match. Federer was too good though in his two singles rubbers and the Netherlands will go again in Group I in 2016.
Netherlands enjoyed its best Davis Cup run in 2001, when it reached the semifinals. Dutchman Michiel Schapers was involved in the joint-longest set of a Davis Cup singles rubber - 46 games - in 1987.
