Japan bounced back from a year in Asia/Oceania Zone Group I after defeating Colombia in a tense encounter at the Ariake Coliseum in September's World Group play-offs. The Japanese team went into the final day against Colombia needing to win both singles rubbers and Kei Nishikori and Tatsuma Ito duly obliged with wins over Santiago Giraldo and Alejandro Falla respectively.
Japan finished runner-up in 1921, which was its best Davis Cup performance to date. Japan was an inaugural member of the World Group in 1981, and has returned to the top tier of the competition after 26 years in the Asia/Oceania Group I.
