Last tie 4-6 March 2016
A young Paraguay side was no match for Venezuela in the opening round of Americas Zone Group II. Ayed Zatar and Bruno Britez both suffered four-set defeats on the opening day, before Venezuela sealed the victory in the doubles rubber. It went on to clinch both dead singles rubbers without the loss of a set.
Paraguay's best Davis Cup performances all came in the mid-1980s, when it reached the quarterfinals on four occasions. Three of these ties went down to the deciding rubber.
