In a third zone, the "Eastern Zone", was added. Because there were three zones, the winner of one of the three zones received a bye in the first round of the INZ challenger rounds.
From to , Australia dominated the competition, winning the Cup 15 times in 18 years. Beginning in , the format was changed to a knockout tournament , so that the defending champion was required to compete in all rounds, and the Davis Cup was awarded to the tournament champion.
Their domination was eventually broken in when South Africa and India made the final; however, the final was scratched and South Africa awarded the cup after India refused to travel to South Africa in protest of South Africa's apartheid policies.
The following year saw the first actual final between two "outsider" nations, when Sweden beat Czechoslovakia 3—2, and since then, many other countries have gone on to capture the trophy.
All professionals were not allowed to play in the Davis Cup until when the tennis stars who turned professional prior to the Open Era pre were not allowed to compete in the Davis Cup despite the Grand Slam tournaments and most tennis tournaments becoming Open Era events in In , a tiered system of competition was created, in which the 16 best national teams compete in the World Group and all other national teams compete in one of four groups in one of three regional zones.
In , the tiebreak was introduced into Davis Cup competition, and from it is used in all five sets. Opposing federations included those from Australia, Germany, and Great Britain.
Support for the reform was also mixed among current and former players, with some such as Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal being in favour of the new format, but others such as Rod Laver , Lucas Pouille and Roger Federer being opposed.
The 16 best national teams are assigned to the World Group and compete annually for the Davis Cup. The competition is spread over four weekends during the year.
Each elimination round between competing nations is held in one of the countries, and is played as the best of five matches 4 singles, 1 doubles.
The ITF determines the host countries for all possible matchups before each year's tournament. The World Group is the top group and includes the world's best 16 national teams.
Teams in the World Group play a four-round elimination tournament. Teams are seeded based on a ranking system released by the ITF, taking into account previous years' results.
The defending champion and runner-up are always the top two seeds in the tournament. The losers of the first-round matches are sent to the World Group playoff round, where they play along with winners from Group I of the regional zones.
The playoff round winners play in the World Group for the next year's tournament, while the losers play in Group I of their respective regional zone.
Each of the three regional zones is divided into four groups. Groups I and II play elimination rounds, with the losing teams facing relegation to the next-lower group.
For the edition , the format of the cup is changed. The series between the teams in this stage will feature two singles matches and one doubles match, instead of the best-of-5 series, with the matches changing from best of 5 sets to best of 3.
As the World Group will now take place as one single tournament, this event has been named as the Davis Cup Finals. The lower zone groups I and II will be composed of single ties deciding promotion or relegation.
Note: The total number of nations in Group One is However, the distribution among the three zones may vary each year, according to the number of nations promoted or relegated between Group One and the World Group.
As in other cup competitions tie is used in the Davis Cup to mean an elimination round. In the Davis Cup, the word rubber means an individual match.
In the annual World Group competition, 16 nations compete in eight first-round ties; the eight winners compete in four quarterfinal ties; the four winners compete in two semifinal ties; and the two winners compete in the final tie.
Each tie consists of five rubbers, which are played in three days usually on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The winner of the tie is the nation which wins three or more of the five rubbers in the tie.
On the first day, the first two rubbers are singles , which are generally played by each nation's two best available singles players.
On the second day, the doubles rubber is played. On the third day, the final two rubbers are typically reverse singles , in which the first-day contestants usually play again, but they swap opponents from the first day's singles rubbers.
However, in certain circumstances, the team captain may replace one or two of the players who played the singles on Friday by other players who were nominated for the tie.
For example, if the tie has already been decided in favour of one of the teams, it is common for younger or lower-ranked team members to play the remaining dead rubbers in order for them to gain Davis Cup experience.
Since , if a nation has a winning 3—1 lead after the first reverse single match and that match has gone to four sets or more, then the remaining reverse single match which is a dead rubber is not played.
All five rubbers are played if one nation has a winning 3—0 lead after the doubles match. Ties are played at a venue chosen by one of the competing countries.
The right of choice is given on an alternating basis. Therefore, countries play in the country where the last tie between the teams was not held. In case the two countries have not met since , lots are drawn to determine the host country.
Venues in the World Group must comply with certain minimum standards, including a minimum seating capacity as follows: .
Prior to each tie, the captain non-playing coach appointed by the national association nominates a squad of four players and decides who will compete in the tie.
On the day before play starts, the order of play for the first day is drawn at random.
