The United States of America's Davis Cup Team represents the United States in Davis Cup tennis competition, and is governed by the United States Tennis Association.

The U.S. competed in the very first Davis Cup in 1900, when a group of Harvard University students challenged the British. They are the most successful Davis Cup team ever to compete in the Davis Cup, winning the coveted Davis Cup title on 32 separate occasions closely followed by Australia on 28.

History[edit]

The U.S. Davis Cup Team won the very first Davis Cup title in 1900. Their most recent win was in 2007, defeating Russia in the final.

The United States played in the World Group in all but one year (1988) since it was created in 1981, sharing this record with Sweden and Czech Republic, and hold the record for ongoing consecutive years in the World Group at 24 as of 2012.
