The Davis Cup is an international competition that pits teams from countries all over the world against each other in a knock-out format tournament. It began as a competition between the United States and Great Britain in 1900, but most recently included 130 countries in 2013. The United States has won the tournament the most times at 32, followed by Australia at 28. The next closest to Australia is a big drop off, with Great Britain at 10 wins and France at 9 wins. Only 14 different countries have won the tournament, which takes places every year.
The best 16 national teams, according to ITF rankings, are placed in the World Group and compete for the title. The rest of the countries are placed in subgroups, such as Americas Zone, Africa Zone and Asia/Oceania Zone. The United States, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Sweden and Spain have all been in the World Group over 30 times – a format that didn’t start until 1972. The format includes four singles match and one double match, with the winning team needing to win 3 of those to move to the next round of the tournament.
