The best-of-five match series begins Friday, Jan. 31 with two singles matches featuring each country’s No. 1 player against the other country’s No. 2 player. Saturday’s schedule features the doubles match at noon. And the final day of play, on Sunday, features the two “reverse singles” matches, when the No. 1 players square off followed by the No. 2 players meeting each other in the final match. All matches are best-of-five sets until one nation clinches the tie.
Reigning Wimbledon champion Andy Murray is expected to compete for Great Britain. The projected U.S. team will include John Isner, Sam Querrey and the No. 1 doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan.
The United States-Great Britain rivalry is the oldest in Davis Cup history, dating back to the first competition in 1900. The U.S. holds an 11-7 record against Great Britain in Davis Cup play, winning the last four ties.
