The Davis Cup first took place back in 1900 between the USA and Great Britain. At Harvard University there was a student called Dwight Filly Davis who spent more time on the tennis court than inside doing his studies. But it wasn't in vain; he rose up through the rankings and got as far as Americas' number two.
To begin with the USA dominated the competition, winning it twice before Great Britain eventually took the Davis Cup home. Australia also did well for a few years until America came back as ever powerful, winning it in seven straight years.
Overall the USA have won the Davis Cup on more occasions than any other nation, winning it thirty one times, but we must not forget Australia, who had a very good run back at the beginning of the Fifties, winning it fifteen times in eighteen years.
