The United States will host a Davis Cup first-round contest in January with the U.S. team facing Great Britain. The match will be played January 31 to February 2 at a site to be determined.
The match will mark the 18th meeting between the two countries in Davis Cup competition but the first since 1999, when the U.S. defeated Great Britain in a road tie, 3-2. The two countries were among the dominant powers in the early years of Davis Cup, and 10 of their 18 meetings came before 1930. Overall, the U.S. leads the head-to-head series, 11-7.
The location and surface for the match will be announced at a later date. Cities or venues interested in bidding have until October 4 to notify the U.S. Tennis Association of their intent to bid. Bids will be due October 25, with a location expected to be announced the week of November 11. More information on the bidding process can be found here.
Team nominations for each squad will be announced no later than 10 days prior to the start of competition. The event will be staged following the Australian Open.
For the U.S., top-ranked singles players John Isner and Sam Querrey and the world No. 1 doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan competed in each tie for U.S. Captain Jim Courier in 2013.
The U.S. Davis Cup team is looking to win its first Davis Cup crown since 2007, after a 2013 season in which it defeated Brazil, 3-2, in Jacksonville, Florida, in the first round before falling to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Serbia, 3-1, in Boise, Idaho, in the quarterfinals.
