The Yugoslavia Davis Cup team competed from 1927–1992 and represented the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (up to 1929 known as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes), the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (up to 1963 the Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia). It was organized by the Yugoslav Tennis Association. In the 1990s, four nations split off:

The Yugoslav team that competed from 1992 to 2003 represented the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia that changed names to Serbia and Montenegro Davis Cup team after 2003. This later split into the Serbia Davis Cup team and the Montenegro Davis Cup team. For history and records of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (consisting of only Montenegro and of Serbia) and the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro, see Serbia Davis Cup team.

In 1952, Dragutin Mitić and Milan Branović, with 29 ties and 4 ties respectively, defected from the Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia.[1]
