The 1919 International Lawn Tennis Challenge was the 14th edition of what is now known as the Davis Cup. After not being played for four years during World War I, the competition resumed with four teams challenging Australia for the cup. Australia had participated in winning the 1914 competition with New Zealand as Australasia, which is why Australia was the team being challenged. Australia won the title from Great Britain. The final was played at the Double Bay Grounds in Sydney, Australia on 16–21 January 1920.[1] [2]
