According to Bill Kellogg - a committee member on the USA DAVIS CUP- the International Tennis Federation came up with another term to distinguish between a "match between …nations" and the "individual match between the players". The term is a tie. For example USA vs France is a tie. The term "rubber" is taken from other sports like cricket. Also used in Bridge to stand for 2 out of 3 games. Rubber in tennis is the match between players. The dictionary definition says something like this: "a rubber is a deciding contest of 2 opponents who have previously won their same number of contests from each other."
None. The women's equivalent of the Davis Cup is called the Fed Cup. The Davis Cup is a "Men Only" event; the women play the Federation Cup - now a title shortened to "The Fe…d Cup".
Davis Cup team tennis is an men's international competition that takes place every year. At various times throughout the year countries compete against one another, elimin…ating the loser until a country is crowned champion. Each contest between countries consists of 4 singles and 1 doubles match with the winners of each of the five matches earning 1 point for their country in the overall contest.
The spelling tieing is not an acceptable modern form. The correct spelling is tying (as with die, lie, and vie which form the present participle/gerunds dying, lying, and vyin…g). Some dictionaries will list tieing as an archaic form.

Not much really, except the bats are different. The paddle bat is a smaller solid bat whereas the normal tennis racket has strings and is bigger.
If your playing a set tie-break (7 point), or match tie-break (10 point) they are the same in scoring. The person to start serving the tie-break only serves for one… point. After the first point the other player gets to serve for the next two points, after those two points the player who started serving serves for two points and so on and so for. To win you must win by at least 2 points. When the score of the tie-break can be divided by 6 then you switch sides, ex. 5-1, 3-2, 6-6.... Here is an example of a tie-break. Player A (PA) and Player B (PB) are playing each other, PA was serving and won the last game to make the score 6-6 in the match. PB starts serving the tie-break, PB's first serve is a fault, the second serve is an ace. The tie-break score is 1-0 PA leads. It is PA's turn to serve, PA's first serve is good and PA wins the point, score 2-0 PA leads. PA is still serving, PA's first serve is a fault, PA's secon serve is another fault, score 2-2 PA leads. PB serves is now up to serve, PB's first serve is an ace, score 2-2 tied. PB is still serving, PB's first serve is another ace, score 2-3 PB leads. PA's serve, PA wins the point, score 3-3 tied. They switch sides. PA is still serving, PA loses this point, score 3-4 PB leads.....
The World group competition is limited to the 16 countries that are selected to be in the World Group. The Davis Cup competition is open to other countries that are not in the… World Group.

Lawn Tennis is the regular tennis that we all know today. Little do many people know, there is a (outdated) sport called real tennis. It involves playing tennis with very …heavy balls and small racquets in a small cubicle where the ball is allowed to ricochet off the walls.
Traditionally, tennis was viewed as a game to be played mainly on the lawn. As a result, most earlier tennis clubs or associations were named as 'Lawn tennis association…s". In Australia, for instance, the tennis association, not so long ago, was named, the LTAA or the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia. Originally, the Davis Cup was seen as mainly a lawn tennis tournament, but it has now moved along with the times, and can be played on various surfaces.
Awarded in polop in the Davis Cup Award, and in tennis is awarded in the international matches award for the winner. Or so is how it seems to me to be awarded.
Well, as I write this just past mid-November 2012, it remains Spain who won the last Davis Cup tie - in 2011. However, the Spanish team of 2012, have their backs to the wall… at present in the 2012 Final Day, as they are trailing the Czech Republic by 2 rubbers to 1, the Czechs having just won the doubles leg of the final. If player reputations continue to hold true, in less than 12 hours from now, the Czech Republic will be the new nation holding aloft the Davis Cup - 2012.
In a test match, a draw and tie are completely different. Draw:Undecided result. Tie: Second team makes the same score AND all wickets lost. Only two ties have occurred …in the 2,000 Tests played since 1877. The first was in 1960 and the second in 1986.
