The 1971 Davis Cup was the 60th edition of the most important tournament between national teams in men's tennis. 50 teams would enter the competition, 28 in the Europe Zone, 13 in the Americas Zone, and 9 in the Eastern Zone.

Brazil defeated Mexico in the Americas Zone final, India defeated Japan in the Eastern Zone final, and Romania and Czechoslovakia won the Europe Zones. In the Inter-Zonal Zone, Brazil defeated Czechoslovakia, Romania defeated India, and Romania defeated Brazil in the final. Romania then fell to defending champions the United States in the Challenge Round. The final was played at the Olde Providence Racquet Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States on 8-11 October.[1]

South Africa was excluded from the tournament as part of the growing international opposition to its apartheid policies.
