The Czech Republic Fed Cup team is the representative national team of the Czech Republic in Fed Cup competition. The Czech Republic team in its current incarnation began competing in 1993. It is seen as the primary successor to the Czechoslovak team, and not Slovakia, even though the Czechoslovak team included both Czech and Slovak players.

Czechoslovakia won the Fed Cup five times between 1975 and 1988, but the victory in 2011 was the team's first win as the Czech Republic,[1] They have since won two more Fed Cups, in 2012 and 2014.[2]

Martina Navrátilová, one of the Czechoslovak team's greatest players, helped guide the team to victory in 1975. In 1981 she became a US citizen and in later tournaments, notably the 1986 Fed Cup final, she played for the United States against her former nation.
