HistoryEdit

Before 1992Edit

Serbia, together with other former Yugoslavian countries, competed in its first Fed Cup in 1969, as Yugoslavian Fed Cup team until 1992. Yugoslavia reached the semifinals in 1984, with 1977 French Open champion, Mima Jaušovec and Sabrina Goleš in the team.

From 1995Edit

Together with, what is now Montenegro Fed Cup team, Serbia competed under name of Yugoslavia from 1995 until 2003; and from 20042006 under name of Serbia and Montenegro. After Montenegro declared its independence, Serbia is competing under its present name since 2007.

The biggest success from 1995 is when Serbia Fed Cup team reached the final in 2012 Fed Cup World Group, where they lost to Czech Republic in away tie.
