Last tie 18-20 September 2015
Brazil disappointingly lost 3-1 at home to a Croatia side without top player Marin Cilic. Thomaz Bellucci and Borna Coric won the opening day's singles to make honours even going into the doubles. Ivan Dodig and Adam Pavlasek shocked Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares to put Croatia ahead, before Coric defeated Bellucci on the Sunday to relegate Brazil to Americas Zone Group I for 2016.
Brazil is a two-time semifinalist, having reached the last four in 1992 and 2000. Prior to the creation of the World Group in 1981, it reached the Inter Zonal Final - the round before the Challenge Round - in both 1966 and 1971.
