The Austria Davis Cup team represents Austria in Davis Cup tennis competition and are governed by Tennis Austria. In 2010 Austria was re-promoted to the World Group after being relegated to the Europa/Africa Zone Group I only one year earlier. In 2012, Austria advanced to the World Group quarterfinals for the first time since 1995, eventually losing against Spain.

History

Austria competed in its first Davis Cup in 1905.

The Austrian team achieved their best Davis Cup result in 1990, when they were on the brink of reaching the final, playing their semi final against the USA on clay in Vienna, with a team consisting of Thomas Muster, Horst Skoff and Alex Antonitsch. After Muster had won his singles rubbers against Michael Chang and Andre Agassi, the standing in the tie was 2:2. Skoff and Chang met each other in the decisive fifth rubber, with Skoff taking a 2 set lead, and trying to close out the third set as the daylight faded. Skoff failed to do this and Chang took the third set, with the match then postponed until the next day, with Skoff leading 2 sets to 1 overnight. Skoff needed to win 1 more set to send Austria into the final, but the final 2 sets were both won by Chang, so Austria went out and the USA reached the final.
