Davis Cup is the largest annual international team competition in the world, and the U.S. is the most successful nation in its storied history.
Originally established in 1900 as a contest between America and Great Britain, the event now regularly includes more than 120 nations each year.
The Davis Cup has been held every year since 1900, with the exception of 1901, 1910, 1915-18 and 1940-45. In total, 14 countries have been crowned Davis Cup champions since the U.S. won the inaugural event. No nation has won more titles than the U.S., which has lifted the trophy 32 times.
The U.S. last won the Davis Cup in 2007 when the team of Andy Roddick, James Blake, Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan lifted the trophy.
Only teams in the 16-country World Group can contest the Davis Cup on any given year. The other countries are placed into three regional zones depending on their location: Americas, Asia/Oceania and Europe Africa.
