1935 International Lawn Tennis Challenge

1935 International Lawn Tennis Challenge

The 1935 International Lawn Tennis Challenge was the 30th edition of what is now known as the Davis Cup. Due to increased political tensions in Europe, entries for the Europe Zone declined sharply, causing the Qualifying Round system to be scrapped. Only 11 teams would enter the Europe Zone; while six would enter the Americas Zone, four in North America and two in South America.

The United States beat Brazil in the Americas Zone. The USA defeated Germany in the Inter-Zonal play-off, but would again fall to Great Britain in the Challenge Round. The final was played at Centre Court in Wimbledon, London, England on 27-30 July.[1][2][3]
