  • Tie Summary

    USA and Belarus are meeting for the first time in Fed Cup, therefore the host for this tie was decided by lot.

    USA, the most successful Fed Cup nation with 17 titles, are playing outside of the competition’s top division for the first time in their history after being relegated in 2011. The Americans lost to Belgium 4-1 and Germany 5-0. The previous two seasons they finished runners-up.

    Belarus are playing at this level of Fed Cup for just the second time with their previous appearance coming in 1999. The Belarusian team won five ties last year to gain promotion from the notoriously tough Europe/Africa Zone Group I.
