The Yugoslavia Davis Cup team competed from 1927-2003 and represented the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (up to 1929 known as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes) from 1927-1939, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (up to 1963 the Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia) from 1946-1992, and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1995-2003.
