Statistics

Player records

Team records

The statistics reflect results since the 1900 Davis Cup, and are up-to-date as of the 2022 Davis Cup Finals Group stage.

Key to eras and positions result

  • Challenge Round era (1900-1971): The previous Davis Cup Champion would have a bye to and host the Challenge Round Final. Thus the losing team in the Final (or Inter-zonal final) was the third-placed team. For the purposes of this table, the third placed team is grouped as semifinalists and the Zonal finalists (fourth and fifth placed teams) are grouped as quarterfinalists.
  • 1972-1980: The previous Davis Cup Champion now had to compete in all rounds. There were four zones consisting of America, Eastern, Europe A and Europe B, with the competition culminating in a four team knockout between zonal winners. The zonal finalists were the equivalent of Davis Cup quarterfinalists.
  • Since 1981: World Group (1981-2018), Davis Cup Finals (from 2019) consisting of 16 or 18 teams.
  • Abbreviations: POW = Winner of World Group Playoff (1981-2018); POL = Lost in World Group Playoff (1981-2018); GS = Did not advance past the Group Stage of the Davis Cup Finals (from 2019)
