Davis Cup MemorialPrint Page Print this page

Monument erected to commemorate the site of New South Wales Lawn Tennis Associations, Courts and to commemorate Australian successes of 1909 and 1919.

The 1909 International Lawn Tennis Challenge was the ninth edition of what is now known as the Davis Cup. For the second straight year, only the British Isles and the United States would challenge Australasia for the Cup. After defeating the British in Philadelphia, the US traveled to Sydney, only to be defeated once again by the Aussies. The final was played at the Double Bay Grounds on 27-30 November.

The 1919 International Lawn Tennis Challenge was the 14th edition of what is now known as the Davis Cup. After not being played for four years during World War I, the competition resumed with four teams challenging Australia for the cup. Australia had participated in winning the 1914 competition with New Zealand as Australasia, which is why Australia was the team being challenged. Australia won the title from Great Britain. The final was played at the Double Bay Grounds in Sydney, Australia on 16–21 January 1920.
