It is necessary to look back to 1984 to find the only occasion on which these two nations have faced each other. Argentina won that World Group consolation round match 2-0 with Gabriela Sabatini leading the way.
There was little stopping Argentina during their Americas Zone Group I campaign dropping just a single set on their way to the title. They have seen little success in the World Group II play-offs recently having been beaten by Japan and Canada without winning a rubber in the last two years.
China was equally as lethal in their three Asia/Oceania Zone Group I ties on their way to this tie beating Chinese Taipei, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan without losing a match. China was particularly boosted by the return of Li Na and Zheng Jie for the first time since 2008 and 2009 respectively and are looking for a return to World Group II following a two year absence.
