BNP Paribas became the Davis Cup's new Title Sponsor from this year's tournament, taking over from NEC, the previous sponsor since the 1981 tournament.[1]

Russia defeated the defending champions France in the final, held at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris, France, on 29 November–1 December, to win their first title.[2][3] This is the only time in the history of the competition that a two-set deficit has been turned around in a live fifth rubber of a Final.[4]
