WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., March 13, 2007– The USTA has announced a record sell-out for the 2007 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Quarterfinal between the United States and Spain at Winston-Salem’s Joel Coliseum, April 6-8.

The capacity for the venue is 14,453, making it the highest attended Davis Cup in the United States in over 15 years and the third highest attended Davis Cup in U.S. history.

"Everything is in place for a memorable Davis Cup weekend,” said Arlen Kantarian, Chief Executive, Professional Tennis, USTA.

“We are thrilled that tennis fans from around the country and throughout the Winston-Salem area have supported this event.”

Play begins at 2 p.m. each day in the three-day, best of five match series. Two singles matches will be played on Friday. The doubles match is featured Saturday and two “reverse” singles matches are scheduled for Sunday.
