Is Chinese Taipei allowed to play Davis Cup?

Are players from this unrecognized country which is Taiwan allowed to play Davis Cup. It would be a shame if this was not the case with talented players in the top 150.

They have been playing since 1972. I don't know of any instances where they had to play Communist China

Re: Is Chinese Taipei allowed to play Davis Cup?

and in fact, both Chinese Taipei and Chinese Hongkong are allowed to join in Olympic Game and other International Game.

But I dunno what Mainland official government means.

Re: Is Chinese Taipei allowed to play Davis Cup?

This is a 'nation' that potentially could play World Group Davis Cup within a few years.. That would be quite something

Why not? Chinese Taipei have won some Olympic medals. They have excellent baseball teams and women's pin-pong teams.

If I recalled correctly, they had played vs each other in DC before. i.e. Mainland China and Taipei.

The 2 governments have been doing business for many years on the unofficial level.

Taiwan is an island. To differentiate the People's Republic of China (on the mainland) and the Republic of China (Taiwan), many people refer the first one as mainland China, thus the mainland official government.

Chinese Taipai is one tie (v. Pakistan) away from the World Group Play-Offs:

Re: Is Chinese Taipei allowed to play Davis Cup?

Chinese Taipei is what China (and therefore, the Olympic Games and ATP) calls Taiwan. I was quite confused when (TPE) or whatever the acronym it is appeared by that one ATP qualifier (forgot his name but played doubles w/ Schuettler at one point?), having that Taipei is the capital of Tiawan, not a nation.

If we use "Taiwan" or "Republic of China" then we probably won't be able to play DC or any other international sports games.Because if we use the word Taiwan or R.O.C ,then that means we represent a "nation" and mainland China government won't be happy to see that.

So to reply to title,yes, "Chinese Taipei" is allowed play DC,but "Taiwan" or "R.O.C." isn't. To avoid any further political arguments,I think I should

p.s. the one play double with Schuettler is Yen-Hsun Lu.They won the doubles title of Chennai Open this year I think he's regulary trained with Schuettler for a long time.

Re: Is Chinese Taipei allowed to play Davis Cup?

There are many non-countries that participate. Others are the Pacific islands team (I forgot what they are called), a team of Carribean islands, and Puerto Rico.

I think it's a little silly to have places with teams that aren't nations... as the entire premise for the competition is to be between nations.

I especially get frustrated with people playing for Puerto Rico, which is NOT A COUNTRY.

Lu trained with Wang, Schuettler, Lars, Pless and Levy during off season last year in Germany.
