Next tie 2016
New Zealand will battle it out in Asia/Oceania Zone Group I for the third straight year.
Last tie 17-19 July 2015
New Zealand suffered a 3-2 home loss to India after the visitors won both of the final day's singles rubbers to recover from trailing 2-1. Michael Venus and Yuki Bhambri ensured that Friday's play in Christchurch was split, but Marcus Daniell and Artem Sitak edged the hosts ahead by winning the doubles in straight sets. However, the two Indian singles players raised their game when it mattered as Somdev Devvarman and Bhambri eased through the Sunday singles to give India the victory and see New Zealand miss out on the chance to play for World Group promotion.
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.
