Japan are former Fed Cup semifinalists, having reached the last four in 1996. A year later, Japan’s World Group first round tie against France entered the record books on three counts - most number of games in a tie (162) and joint most number of games in a rubber (54) and set (32), when Nathalie Tauziat defeated Naoko Sawamatsu 75 46 1715.
