Next tie 16-18 September 2016
Switzerland will compete in a World Group play-off in September.
Last tie 4-6 March 2016
2014 champions Switzerland were roundly beaten in Italy, suffering for the absence of Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. Marco Chiudinelli and Henri Laaksonen fought bravely against Paolo Lorenzi and Andreas Seppi, but succumbed to five-set and four-set losses respectively. In the doubles, Seppi and Simone Bolelli were too strong for Chiudinelli and Laaksonen, meaning the Swiss will have to compete in a World Group play-off for second successive year.
Switzerland won Davis Cup for the first time in 2014. Led by Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka, the Swiss outgunned France 3-1 in front of a record crowd at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille.
