Next tie 8-9 February 2014
Switzerland will make the short trip to France for their World Group II first round match. The teams have met twice previously, with each nation having won one tie. France won back in 1964, but more recently Switzerland won 5-0 in the 1998 World Group semifinal.
Last tie 20-21 April 2013
Switzerland failed to win a place in the World Group after Australia proved too strong in a rain-affected play-off. With no play possible on the first two days, Switzerland and Australia were forced to contest the singles rubbers simultaneously. Romina Oprandi scored Switzerland's only point as they fell 3-1 to the visitors.
Switzerland were runners-up in 1998, narrowly losing to Spain 3-2. The team of Martina Hingis and Patty Schnyder led the Spaniards 2-1, but slipped to defeat in the deciding doubles rubber.
