Davis Cup History


The Davis Cup began in 1900 between Great Britain and the United States. Four members of the Harvard University tennis team wanted to challenge the British to a tennis competition, with Dwight F. Davis, one of the four Harvard players designing the tournament format.

By 1905 the tournament included Belgium, Austria, France, and Australasia which combined a team from Australia and New Zealand until 1914. The tournament was initially called the International Lawn Tennis Challenge, but was soon known as the Davis Cup.

Australia dominated the Davis Cup between 1950 and 1967, winning the competition 15 times in 18 years. In 1972 the format was changed to a knockout tournament with the defending champion required to compete in all rounds.

The United States, Great Britain/British Isles, France and Australia/Australasia dominated the Davis Cup until 1973 when South Africa and India made the final. However, India refused to travel to South Africa in protest at South Africa's apartheid policies.

The following year Sweden beat Czechoslovakia in the final with many other countries going on to lift the trophy. In 2016 there were 135 nations competing in the Davis Cup.

The format of the Davis Cup changed in 2019 with the tournament becoming an 18 team event at the end of the tennis season. The change was made due the schedule meaning that many top tennis players refused to take part.

The finals became a round-robin format going into a knockout phase, with all ties consisting of two singles and one doubles rubber. The 18 nations are divided into six groups of three, with the group winners and two best-placed runners-up progressing to the quarter-finals.

The new Davis Cup format was backed by Spanish footballer Gerard Pique and Japanese businessman Hiroshi Mikitani to make the tournament more attractive to sponsors and broadcasters. 

The women's equivalent of the Davis Cup is the Fed Cup, with the Hopman Cup for mixed teams a popular start to the tennis season.
