Last tie 4-6 March 2016
New Zealand suffered a tough loss to Korea, Rep. away in Seoul, leaving the team with a battle to remain in Zone Group I for next year. Losses for Jose Statham and Michael Venus put New Zealand on the back foot after day one, but Venus teamed up with Artem Sitak to win the doubles. Korea's young team ultimately proved too strong, however, when rising star Hyeon Chung defeated Statham in straight sets to secure the tie for the home side.
New Zealand reached the World Group semifinals in 1982, its best Davis Cup performance. Between 1905 and 1922, players from New Zealand and Australia joined forces to compete for Australasia.
