Austria’s best result in the Davis Cup was the semi-final in 1990 in which they were only one set away from the final but ended up losing to the United States. In 2019 they could not make it through the Qualifiers, falling to Chile.
Captain: Stefan Koubek
The former world number 20 has occupied the captain's chair since 2015, four years after his retirement from professional tennis. In his career he won three singles and one doubles titles. A quarter-finalist at the Australian Open in 2002, he competed over 13 years in 22 Davis Cup qualifiers, with a win-loss record of 20-19.
