  • Tie Summary

    USA and Italy go head-to-head for the fourth time in six years. The two nations know each other well having contested back-to-back finals in 2009-10 and it is Italy who have got the better of recent meetings.

    Not only did the Italians win both the finals in 2009 and 2010, but they also defeated USA in the first round in 2013. These are the only three victories that the Italians have registered against the North Americans in a rivalry that dates back to 1963.

    USA holds a 9-3 overall lead in previous meetings between the two nations but is looking for its first win since 2003. The Americans hold the record for the most Fed Cup title wins (17), while 2013 winners Italy have now won the title in four of the past eight years.
