Who Won The 2022 Davis and Billie Jean King Cups In Tennis?
In the end, Team Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime, Vasek Pospisil, and Dennis Shapovalov took a surprise 'world championship' title, defeating Team Australia's Alex de Minaur, Thanasi Kokkinasis, Max Purcell, and Jordan Thompson 2-1 in the final for a first-ever Davis Cup championship.
Team Canada only entered the 16-team group stage of the Finals as a wildcard, after Team Russia was barred following the sports world sanctions for the war in Ukraine. The Canadians scored wins over Team Germany (2-1) and then Team Italy (2-1) to make the final match.
The Davis Cup has been held since 1900 (!), with Team United States and Team Australia having the most titles, at 32 and 28 each, respectively.
Launched in 1963, the Billie Jean Cup (nee Federation Cup / Fed Cup) has been won most often by Team United States (18 titles), followed by Team Czech Republic / Czechoslovakia (11). Just as in the Davis Cup, Team Russia had been the defending champions from the previous year, but was excluded from the competition.
Congratulations to Teams Canada and Switzerland, tennis' world team champions in 2022!
