When Davis Cup finalists Australia and Spain meet, it will be for the fifth time in their history and the fourth time on grass.
World number three Ferrero is the highest ranked player in the final
Ominously for Spain, they have been defeated each time on grass, with their only win coming on clay three years ago.
However, Spain's victory came in their most recent meeting in the final three years ago.
Two more of the meetings have come in final ties, with Australia victorious in 1965 and 1967.
Australia will be hoping former world number one Lleyton Hewitt can recapture his form and get his country off to a great start on the first day of the tie.
However, he faces Spanish number one Juan Carlos Ferrero and the pair have three wins each from their six meetings.

John Fitzgerald (Aus) 7-2
Spain, on the other hand, will be optimistic that in the later rubber, Ferrero will continue his dominance of current Australian number one, Mark Philippoussis.
The Spaniard has won both encounters so far.
Carlos Moya also holds the upper hand over Philippoussis, having claimed four victories and lost only twice.
And Moya's record against Hewitt makes good reading for the Spanish - he leads five wins to three.
