Next round 2016
Austria will play in Europe/Africa Zone Group II for the first time in 2016 after a seven-year stay in Group I.
Last round 4-7 February 2015
A disappointing week for Austria in Budapest saw them lose all three of their round robin matches without winning a rubber. They finally got on the scoreboard in their Europe/Africa Zone Group I relegation play-off against Latvia through Barbara Haas, who defeated Diana Marcinkevica 60 26 60, but Julia Grabher and Sandra Klemenschits lost the deciding doubles in straight sets as Austria slipped into Group II for the first time in its history.
Austria have reached the Fed Cup semifinals on three occasions - in 1990, 2002 and 2004.
