Fed Cup History

The Fed Cup dates back to 1919 when Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman invented the idea of a women's team tennis competition. The first contest took place in 1923 between the United States and Great Britain and was named the Wightman Cup.

The competition took off in 1962 after Nell Hopman’s initial revival and Mary Hardwick Hare’s persistence in persuading the International Tennis Federation (ITF) to have a team championship played over one week in a different venue each year. 

Launched as the Federation Cup in 1963 to celebrate the International Tennis Federation's (ITF) 50th anniversary, the competition was open to all nations and became a resounding success.

Initially attracting 16 countries, the Federation Cup was dominated by the United States and Australia with Grand Slam champions and women’s tennis legends Darlene Hard, Billie Jean King, Margaret Smith and Lesley Turner representing their nations.

When sponsorship and prize money became available, the number of teams expanded with 73 nations competing in 1994. In 1995 the Federation Cup changed to a new format and was renamed the Fed Cup.

The men's equivalent of the Fed Cup is the Davis Cup. The only countries to hold the Fed Cup and Davis Cup at the same time are Australia, the Czech Republic and the United States. 

In 2020 the Fed Cup format changed with the World Group taking place at one location in one week. There will be 12 teams divided into four round-robin groups of three teams each with the winners of each group advancing to the semi-finals. 

The series in the World Group features two singles matches and one doubles match. The name of the World Group reflects it as a single tournament, named the Fed Cup Finals.
