The 1952 Davis Cup was the 41st edition of the most important tournament between national teams in men's tennis. 28 teams would enter the competition, 22 in the Europe Zone, 5 in the Americas Zone, and India alone in the new Eastern Zone.

The United States defeated Canada in the Americas Zone final, and Italy defeated Belgium in the Europe Zone final. Italy defeated India, who had received a bye directly into the Inter-Zonal Zone, and then lost to the USA. The USA fell to defending champions Australia in the Challenge Round. The final was played at the Memorial Drive Tennis Centre in Adelaide, Australia on 29–31 December.
