Spain and Ukraine will meet for the first time when they take to the court for their World Group II tie.
Spain crashed out of the World Group in their first year back in the top tier after a three year absence. They were beaten fairly comfortably away to Russia in the first round and faced Slovak Republic in the play-offs to try and maintain their place but fell short.
Ukraine were also relegated last year having lost out in a close tie against Italy in the first round of the World Group which left them still looking for their first ever victory at that level. Facing a strong USA team that boasted Serena Williams in the play-offs they were blown off the court in a 5-0 whitewash.
