The Sweden Davis Cup team (Swedish: Sveriges Davis Cup-lag) represents Sweden in Davis Cup tennis competition and is governed by the Swedish Tennis Association.

As of 2016, Sweden is the 5th most successful nation in Davis Cup history, having won the title 7 times, 6 of which have been recorded since 1981 when the tiered system and the World Group were created, which makes the Swedish team the most successful one in this modern period.

In season 2012, Sweden was relegated from the World Group, and played in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I in seasons 2013, 2014, and 2015. In 2016, it was relegated to the Europe/Africa Zone Group II, and in 2017 it is attempting to return to the Europe/Africa Zone Group I, with the next match (in Round 2) scheduled for April against  Turkey.
