Costa Rica and Puerto Rico earned promotion to Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Americas Zone Group II with wins over Cuba and Bahamas respectively.

Cuba's Randy Blanco won the opening point of the tie against Costa Rica before Pablo Nunez forced a decisive doubles. The Costa Rican pair of Alvaro Riveros and Julian Saborio proved too good and clinched the vital point for the win.

The story was similar in the other promotion play-off between Puerto Rico and Bahamas. The hosts took the early lead thanks to Gabriel Flores Ruiz, but Devin Mullings won the second to force another crucial doubles.

The Puerto Rican partnership of Alex Llompart and Gilberto Alvarez triumphed to book their team's place in the next tier of the competition in 2015.
