HistoryEdit

Cyprus competed in its first Davis Cup in 1985. They lost their first 10 ties before finally defeating the Congo. Due to incurring so many losses, Cyprus was relegated to the fourth and last zonal group in 1997. The team began to record regular wins when in the year 2000 a 14-year-old Marcos Baghdatis made his Davis Cup debut. In 2007, Cyprus returned to the Zonal Group II and recorded their best result in 2009 where they fell one match shy of being promoted to the Zonal Group I.

Home CourtEdit

The first ever tie Cyprus competed in was held in Nicosia against Ireland. The team continued to play out of the Cyprus capital of Nicosia until 2010 when the team played in Spyros Kyprianou Athletic Centre located in Limassol (home of Marcos Baghdatis). Ties are now shared between Nicosia and Limassol.
