The Fed Cup is the most important women's tennis competition in the world as it is the female equivalent of men's tennis Davis Cup. The Fed Cup tennis tournament was established in 1963 and was known as the Federation Cup through 1994. All participating nations in the Fed Cup are members of the ITF.
The Fed Cup is a bit smaller relative to the number of nations that take part in the Davis Cup. 74 nations in total participate while the World Group consists of the top 8 teams. In the Davis Cup the World Group consists of 16 teams. In Fed Cup tennis the World Group is divided into two tiers, 8 are in World Group 1 and 8 are in World Group 2. These two groups then make up what is referred to as the Elite World Cup. Another similarity to the Davis Cup is that the sides that do not make it to the elite groups are divided into zonal competitions. Those zones are the Americas Zone, the Europe/Africa Zone and the Asia/Ocean Zone. Of those 3 zonal competitions 1 nation each is promoted from both the Asia/Ocean zone and the Americas Zone while 2 are promoted from the Europe/Africa Zone into the World Groups. The teams compete in both singles tennis and doubles tennis. Watch Fed Cup doubles tennis live online this year at www.watchlivetennis.org.
