The Davis Cup is the most prestigious international men’s' teams tennis tournament in the world. The ladies version of the Davis Cup is known as the FedCup. The competition is held every year and the different countries participating play matches between February and November. The first round takes place in February, the quarter finals in April and these are followed by the semifinals in September and the finals in November.
137 countries participate in Davis Cup tennis with 16 of those included in the level 1 World Group. All 137 nations that are eligible to play are members of the ITF or International Tennis Federation. It is the top 16 nations that actually play for the Davis Cup while the remaining countries play in different regional groups looking for the opportunity to one day climb into the top 16. The competition has been around since 1900 with the United States having dominated overall with 32 wins and 29 second place finishes overall. The Australian Davis Cup team enjoyed a dominant stretch during the mid 20th century with 15 wins in the 18 years spanning 1950 to 1967. The tournament is named after Dwight Davis.
Much like the ATP and the WTA, the ITF publishes rankings of the top Davis Cup nations. At this time the top 10 includes Team Russia, Team USA, Croatia, France and Australia. It is because of the strong play of nations such as the United States, Australia, England and France, that all 4 countries enjoy the distinction of hosting the Grand Slam tournaments- the US Open, Australian Open, Wimbledon and the French Open respectively. Among the players you can watch taking part in the Davis Cup are USA members Andy Roddick and James Blake, Argentina's David Nalbandian and Guillermo Canas, Marat Safin and Nikolay Davydenko of Russia as well as David Ferrer and Rafael Nadal of Spain. That number of star players playing for their home country is one of the most alluring qualities of the tournament.
