As of 2019, Sweden is the 5th most successful nation in Davis Cup history, having won the title 7 times, 6 of which have been recorded since 1981 when the tiered system and the World Group were created, which makes the Swedish team the most successful one in this modern period.

In September 2012, Sweden was relegated from the World Group after being defeated, 0–5, against Belgium,[1] and played in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I in seasons 2013, 2014, and 2015. In 2016, Sweden was relegated to the Europe/Africa Zone Group II, but after a successful 2017 campaign, managed to return to the Europe/Africa Zone Group I, for 2018. In September 2018, Sweden defeated Switzerland in their World Group play-off tie and, as a result, guaranteed themselves a seeding for the February 2019, Qualifying Round for the new-look Davis Cup Finals in 2019.

Sweden failed to advanced to the Davis Cup Finals as it lost its World Group play-off, against Colombia, during February 2019. After beating Israel in September 2019, Sweden once again won a place in the 2020 Qualifiers.
