Davis Cup winners

India has finished as the second-best team in the tournament on multiple occasions.

Davis Cup is one of the most iconic men’s tennis tournaments. It was started in 1900 making it a 122-year-old tournament. The first tournament was held in the USA. The USA and Great Britain played and the former came up as the winners of the Davis Cup. The tournament is organized every year by the International Tennis Federation. A total of 18 teams participate in the tournament every year. As of 2016, a total of 135 nations have participated in the Davis Cup.

Origin of Davis Cup

The tournament was named after Dwight Davis as he played a vital role in the formation of the tournament which started in 1900. The first match of the Davis Cup was played between America and Britain ( formally ‘British Isles’) and was played at Longwood Cricket Club, Boston, Massachusetts. In 1905 apart from the USA and Britain, countries like France, Belgium, Austria and Australasia (Australia and New Zealand combined) became part of the tournament.

Davis Cup was known as the International Lawn Tennis Challenge but was later renamed to its present name. Until 1973 the tournament was dominated by the United States, Britain, France and Australia as the winners were from these four countries only. Ultimately this was broken in 1974 as South Africa was the eventual winner and India made it to the final of the tournament.

The Davis Cup became an open event in 1968 and this was also the year when professional players of a country were allowed to compete. The World group system was introduced in the tournament in 1981 in which the 16 countries were divided into groups. Moreover, in 1989 the tiebreaker was also introduced in the tournament and in 2016 was introduced in all five sets. In 2018, 18 national teams were able to participate in the Davis Cup.
