Next tie 2017
Germany will compete in the World Group in 2017. The draw for the first round will be made in June.
Last tie 16-17 April 2016
Germany maintained its World Group status for 2017 with a win in the play-offs over a tricky Romanian side. Wins for both nations' No. 1 players, Angelique Kerber for Germany and Simona Halep for Romania, on day one left the tie evenly poised, before Kerber defeated Halep in the battle of the No. 1s and Andrea Petkovic beat Monica Niculescu to seal the tie for the Germans.
Germany have won the Fed Cup title on two occasions - in 1987 and 1992 - and currently lie in joint-seventh place on the all-time list of champions. Until 1990, German players represented F.R. Germany.
