Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d Russia took over the CIS's place in the World Group, and assumed all of the USSR's historical records. Estonia, Latvia, and Ukraine would all begin as new nations in Group III.
  2. ^ a b "Reconstructed from Davis Cup Nation-by-Nation Historical Records". 
  3. ^ a b c As the stronger tennis nation that began Davis Cup play immediately after the breakup of Yugoslavia, Croatia took Yugoslavia's spot in Group I and Slovenia began as a new nation in Group III. Yugoslavia's historical records were carried on when they resumed play in 1995, and continue today under Serbia.
