The tie is expected to include Davis Cup stalwart Andy Roddick, who currently resides in Austin and is second all-time in U.S. Davis Cup singles victories with 33. World No. 1 and nine-time Grand Slam singles champ Rafael Nadal is expected to compete for Spain. This will be the first home tie for U.S. captain Jim Courier, who’s in his first year at the helm. This is the first home tie for the U.S. Davis Cup team since the ‘09 first round in Birmingham, Ala. Since then, the U.S. has played in four consecutive away ties.
This will be the fifth Davis Cup tie played in Texas and first since the U.S. defeated Spain, 3-1, in the ‘02 quarterfinal at the Westside TC in Houston. The U.S. is 4-0 in Texas, including the ‘92 Davis Cup Final in Ft. Worth when arguably the best U.S. Davis Cup team ever (Courier, Andre Agassi and the doubles team of John McEnroe and Pete Sampras) defeated Switzerland 3-1. A 10-year-old Roddick attended that match as a fan with his family.
