Egypt have been relegated to Africa Zone Group III for 2013.
Ireland won the decisive fifth rubber on a Monday after rain had interrupted their tie against Egypt. Conor Niland lost his opening rubber and was later forced to retire from tennis due to a persistant injury but James McGee rose to the challenge winning both his singles and paired with Sam Barry to win the doubles.
Egypt first played Davis Cup in 1929. Its best performance has been reaching the Europe/Africa Zone Group I semifinals, which it achieved in 1982 and 1985.
