The Davis Cup
The “crème de la crème” in tennis events. Monaco’s first participation was in 1929.
The Davis Cup is the world's largest annual international team competiton in sport with 125 participating nations. It is also the most prestigious men’s tennis competition. It is structured by a 16-nation World Group and several other groups divided by location and level.
After a first legendary home victory against Switzerland, the Principality of Monaco has competed in:
- 77 Davis Cup events playing
- 149 ties
- 56 hosted in Monaco against
- 59 nations
The Monaco Team didn’t manage to repeat its previous performance to remain in the very competitive Groupe II. After a narrow defeat in the 1st round against the Slovenian team (score here), our players also lost against Estonia (score here) on an equally close score of 2/3.
This year, the Monaco team will be playing in Group III. The 4-day tie will take place in Bulgaria, from 4 to 7 April 2018. Monaco will play in the Group consisting of the following nations: Bulgaria, Macedonia, Cyprus, Iceland, Andorra, Albania and San-Marino.
Despite its 2018 victory in Group III which should have enabled it to be promoted to Group II, Monaco found itself relegated to Group III due to the new Davis Cup reform. This resulted in our team playing in Greece from 11 to 14 September. So as not to miss the latest news, click here.
