Next tie 2014
Japan will compete in World Group II next year. The draw for next year's Fed Cup by BNP Paribas will take place on Wednesday 10 July.
Last tie 20-21 April 2013
Japan failed to win a point against Spain in their last Fed Cup outing and were relegated from the World Group as a result. The Japanese struggled to cope with Spain on a slow clay court in Barcelona and finished up losing 4-0.
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.
