2023 in Review

The U.S. Billie Jean King Cup team fell short in its quest for a record-extending 19th Billie Jean King Cup title in November at the Billie Jean King Cup by Gainbridge Finals in Seville, Spain, as Kathy Rinaldi's tenure as team captain came to an end in the group stage. 


Rinaldi's seven years at the helm make her the fourth-longest-tenured of the 19 captains in U.S. team history, behind Billie Jean King and Marty Riessen (9 years) and her immediate predecessor Mary Joe Fernandez (8 years). Her 12 tie wins are tied for fifth all-time.


Lindsay Davenport takes over as captain in 2024. The U.S. will play a qualifying tie in April against a nation and in a location to be determined, and will need to win to return to the Finals again next year. 


The Billie Jean King Cup, the premier international women's tennis team competition formerly known as the Fed Cup, was officially rebranded in honor of the legendary Billie Jean King in late 2020. Some of the greatest tennis players in the history of the game have suited up for the U.S., helping it win a record 18 titles in the competition since the event began in 1963.


No nation can compete with the depth of talent the U.S. has been able to draw on. The U.S. owns a 155-40 record overall since 1963, and more than 20 players have recorded at least 10 individual victories in the competition across singles and doubles.

The U.S. has won more titles than any other country, with its last coming in 2017. 

Lindsay Davenport played on the U.S. team for 11 years, a national record.

Chris Evert won 35 straight matches from 1977-86, and is a record 57-4 overall.

King & Rosie Casals own 26 doubles wins apiece, the most in team history.

Billie Jean King won four titles as U.S. captain.

Since Billie Jean King Cup began in 1963, 84 players have played for the U.S team.
