Overview

Strictly limited - lock in your place now!

After February's loss to Germany in Brisbane the Aussie boys will take on Austria this September for a place in next year's World Group.

Event: Davis Cup 2018 - World Group Play-Off
Teams: Australia v Austria
Event Dates: 14-16 September, 2018
Venue: Messe Congress, Graz, Austria

Austria qualified for the World Group Play-Off thanks to a big win against Russia in Moscow. They are led by world number 8 and 2018 French Open finalist Dominic Thiem who along with Sebastian Ofner and Dennis Novak will be relying on a parochial home crowd for some assistance against the Australians.

Austria's best Davis Cup result was making the semi-finals in 1990. They have been in the World Group ten times since 2000, only making it past the first round once.

Aussie number one Nick Kyrgios will an Aussie contingent including Matthew Ebden, John Millman, doubles specialist John Peers and 19-year-old Alex De Minaur who stirred excitement about his prospects earlier this year by making the semi-finals of the Brisbane International and the final of the Sydney International.

If you have been to a Davis Cup tie before you will understand how different it is to other sporting events. Fiercely parochial, the crowd has a special part to play over a full weekend of emotional tennis. With a Davis Cup record rivalled only by America it's little wonder this event is so important to every Aussie tennis player!

Graz

Graz (population 280,000) is the capital of Austria’s south-eastern province of Styria, and dates back to the 12th century.

The old town centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is dominated by the hill-top Schlossberg. The city is jam-packed with galleries, museums and historic architecture along with plenty of bars and cafés from which to sit back and take it all in.

The city was the birthplace of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, one-time home to Johannes Kepler and Nikola Tesla, and the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger was born and raised in a farming town three kilometres outside the city!
