About The Davis Cup

With more than 100 years of tradition behind it, the Davis Cup is the premier team competition in tennis. The symbol of this prestigious competition is the beautiful silver Davis Cup trophy, donated by Harvard student Dwight Filley Davis in 1900. In the early years, only two nations competed for temporary ownership of the Davis Cup trophy, the United States and the British Isles. In 2002, 142 nations have entered the competition for the honor of bringing the trophy home making the Davis Cup an institution in the tennis world and a matter of national pride for the winning team. The Davis Cup begins in February, culminating in the Davis Cup Final played in late November/early December each year.
