The 1992 Davis Cup (also known as the 1992 Davis Cup by NEC for sponsorship purposes) was the 81st edition of the Davis Cup, the most important tournament between national teams in men's tennis. 93 teams would enter the competition, 16 in the World Group, 21 in the Americas Zone, 23 in the Asia/Oceania Zone, and 33 in the Europe/Africa Zone. Due to the increased number of entries, the tournament was expanded to add a Group III in all zones, with promotion and relegation between it and Group II. Puerto Rico and Qatar made their first appearances in the tournament, and former champions South Africa returned to the tournament for the first time since 1978.

The United States defeated Switzerland in the final, held at the Tarrant County Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas, United States, on 4-6 December, to win their 30th title overall.[1][2]

Notes

  1. ^ a b In response to the Yugoslav Wars and following the adoption of UN SCR 757 in May 1992, Yugoslavia was barred from competing in international sporting competition. This resulted in the Yugoslav team being disqualified from this and future Davis Cups and their Qualifying Round tie against Cuba was defaulted.[3]
  2. ^ a b Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in December 1991, a team representing the Commonwealth of Independent States took their place in the competition.
  3. ^ Cameroon would withdraw from the 1993 tournament, therefore Tunisia were promoted in their place
