Fritz is currently the top-ranked American man at world No. 20, behind a stellar close to the 2021 season in which he reached the Indian Wells semifinals and the Paris Masters quarters. Tokyo Olympian Paul reached a career-high ranking of No. 41 in January, while Davis Cup debutant Korda cracked the Top 40 for the first time last fall. Both Sock and Ram are multiple Grand Slam champions and Olympic medalists in doubles.
Fritz, 24, built on his strong 2021 campaign by reaching the Round of 16 at the Australian Open this year—his first time beyond the third round at a Slam. The Californian has competed for the U.S. in Davis Cup since 2019, when, at 21 years old, he became the youngest American to debut in the Top 25 since Andy Roddick in 2004.
Paul, also 24, is ranked No. 42 and will be making his second Davis Cup appearance. A former junior French Open champion and 2020 Tokyo Olympian, Paul earned his first career win over a Top 5-ranked opponent (def. Andrey Rublev at Indian Wells) and won his first ATP singles title in 2021.
Korda, the youngest member of the team at 21, is ranked just behind Paul at No. 43. A former junior world No. 1 and one of the sport’s top young rising stars, Korda rose from outside the Top 300 to inside the Top 40 in a span of less than two years and won his first ATP singles title in 2021.
Sock, 29, has been ranked as high as No. 2 in doubles and No. 8 in singles and has been playing Davis Cup since 2015. A three-time Grand Slam doubles champion and 2016 Rio Olympic men’s doubles gold medalist, Sock is 9-4 overall in Davis Cup play with a 5-1 mark in doubles.
Ram, 37, is ranked a career-high No. 4 in doubles and is making his second consecutive Davis Cup appearance. A two-time U.S. Olympian and 2016 Rio silver medalist in mixed doubles, Ram won his second Grand Slam and third ATP Masters 1000 doubles titles last summer at the US Open and Toronto, respectively, and owns 22 career ATP doubles titles.
This is the first time Davis Cup has been played in Northern Nevada. Davis Cup has only come to Nevada once before, a 1995 matchup between the U.S. and Sweden at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas that the U.S. won en route to winning the title that year. The United States owns an all-time record of 114-19 when playing at home and last won the title in 2007.
The U.S. and Colombia have split their four Davis Cup meetings, with the Colombians winning the latest matchup in the group stages of the 2021 Finals last fall in Turin, Italy.
