Next tie 2015
South Africa will compete in Europe/Africa Zone Group II for the fourth successive year after once again failing to win promotion in 2014.
Last tie 16-19 April 2014
The South African team once again found itself competing in a relegation play-off after a disappointing week in Lithuania. Two narrow losses to Bosnia/Herzegovina and Georgia consigned the South Africans to another relegation battle, but a win against Egypt in the final Pool game gave the team some momentum going into the play-off tie against Montenegro. In the end, South Africa recorded a comfortable win against the Montenegrins, and will hope to carry the form shown at the end of the week into next year's campaign.
South Africa played in the inaugural Fed Cup in 1963 and were crowned champions in 1972, defeating Great Britain 2-1 in the Final. The mid-70s was a glorious period for South African tennis, as the men's team also won the Davis Cup in 1974.
