The World Group ties adopt a knock-out format, with the four winners advancing to the semi-finals while the four losers drop into the World Group play-offs.
These four teams are joined in the play-offs by the four winners from the World Group II ties. The eight teams then play four knock-out ties, with the winners either preserving their World Group status, or earning promotion into the elite group, if they were previously in the World Group II.
Whoever wins these play-offs will play in the World Group II division in the next season, while the losers drop into the Zone Groups.
The World Group and World Group II ties including play-offs are decided over best of five rubbers, played across two days.
The first day, a Saturday, features two singles ties, while the reverse singles are played on Sunday. A deciding fifth rubber, should it be required is also played on Sunday.
The host nation for these ties is determined by where the countries last played. Whoever hosted the most recent meeting between the countries will be away for the next tie, and vice versa.
If the countries have never met before, the choice of ground is determined by lot. The zone groups use a round-robin format, rather than the knock-out system employed by the higher divisions.
The ties are played in one of the participating countries, and usually last up to four days. Ties are decided in best-of-three rubbers - two singles matches and one doubles rubber.
Wightman did not get much by way of support, but in , she went ahead to present a trophy, called the Wightman Cup, for the annual contest between the USA and Great Britain.
The inaugural Federation Cup was a big success, considering the fact that there were no sponsors and prize money, and teams had to pay their own expenses.
However, as the tournament grew in popularity and sponsors came on board, the competition expanded, and by , there were 73 participating teams with the home nation required to construct a special tennis complex in what became known as the Fed Cup legacy.
The rapid expansion of the Federation Cup meant teams had to be split into regional qualifying divisions, which first came into place in , and three years later in , the competition underwent a change in nomenclature, as it became known as the Fed Cup.
Along with the new name came a new format, as the Fed Cup employed a home-and-away system so that players could play for their countries on home soil.
Several other transformations have occurred since then, but the current format, featuring eight-nation World Group and World Group II divisions and three region-based zonal groups has been in effect since Who are the greatest Fed Cup players?
The Fed Cup may be a team event, but some of the best players in the world have represented their countries with distinction. The United States have won more than anybody else, and unsurprisingly, they have had several Fed Cup heroines over the years.
King amassed a record during her Fed Cup career; and captained her country to four titles. Chris Evert has the best winning streak of any woman in Fed Cup singles matches, going unbeaten for 29 matches from her tournament debut in until she lost to Italian Sandra Cecchini in the opening rubber of the quarter final in Prague.
Martina Navratilova, who represented both Czechoslovakia and the USA, is joint-second on 20 matches- a record she shares with Australian great, Margaret Court.
Interestingly, Navratilova and Court never lost a Fed Cup singles rubber, with both boasting incredible records. Serena Williams is also unbeaten in singles rubbers.
The Spanish duo won 18 doubles matches together, more than any other pair in the history of the Fed Cup. Sanchez Vicario and Martinez won five Fed Cup titles together; and reached five other finals.
Defending champions USA and the powerful Czechs are the favourites to make the final, but the two countries face tricky semi-final trips in April.
The Americans are without the Williams sisters as they go to play France on the clay of Aix-en-Provence, while the Czech Republic have also been dragged to their less favoured clay by the Germans, who host the tie at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart.
With Angelique Kerber and Julia Goerges in their side, the Germans have got a terrific chance of scoring just a second win in eight Fed Cup ties against Czech Republic.
The USA are without Serena and Venus Williams, but such is the depth of American tennis that they have still got three top players to call on.
None of those players play their best tennis on clay, but they should still have enough firepower against a French side that continues to be without its highest-ranked player, Caroline Garcia.
