History

Sri Lanka competed in its first Fed Cup in 1990. Their best result was reaching the final qualifying round in 1992 and 1993. In 2007, Sri Lanka were scheduled to compete in the Asia/Oceania Zone Group II in Christchurch, New Zealand, but, together with Syria, withdrew because of a terrorist threat.[3] After competing in 2008, Sri Lanka were listed for the 2009 Asia/Oceania Zone Group II, but did not take part.[4]
