Next tie 2016
South Africa retain their Europe/Africa Zone Group II status for 2016.
Last tie 17-19 July 2015
South Africa romped past Ireland 5-0 at home in Centurion to fend off relegation. Fritz Wolmarans and Tucker Vorster won a couple of tight four-setters on the opening day to give the hosts a handy 2-0 lead. Then Dean O'Brien and Ruan Roelofse combined in the doubles contest to seal the tie. Vorster and Roelofse added to Ireland's misery, by triumphing in the Sunday reverse singles too.
South Africa was crowned Davis Cup champion in 1974. Its last World Group appearance was in 1998.
