History

Chile began playing at the Davis Cup in 1928, but they did not won a tie until 1933, away at Uruguay and not won a home tie until 1969, against Argentina. That was their only second home tie in their history.

The team's most successful performance at the Davis Cup was in 1976, when it lost 1–4 to the Italian team in the final held in Santiago, Chile. Since then, Chile reached the quarterfinals in three occasions: in 1982, losing 1-4 against Australia 1-4, in 2006 lost to USA 2-3, and in 2010 losing to the Czechs 1-4.

In the 2000s, thanks to the Olympic gold winners Nicolás Massú and Fernando González the Chilean team gained promotion to the World Group for the first time in 20 years, and played in there, every season excepting 2008. In the decade, Chile went to play 6 World Group playoffs, winning their 4 home ties, against Japan, Pakistan, Australia and Austria, and losing an away tie at Israel. In 2011 Chile lost 1-4 against both United States and Italy at home, and got relegated to the Americas Zone Group I. Later in 2012, they again lost 1-4 away at Italy, without Fernando González, retired, and Nicolás Massú, inactive, for the first time in 9 years. Chile went to lose at Ecuador and Dominican Republic in 2013 and got relegated to the Americas Zone Group II for the first time in 23 years. Chile lost at Barbados 2-3 and won at home against Paraguay 5-0 to remain in the Group II for the 2015 season.
