The British and American rivalry is the oldest in Davis Cup history. The teams competed in the first ever Davis Cup back in 1900 and have played 20 times, with the USA leading the head-to-head 11-9.

The Americans are the most successful team in Davis Cup history – having lifted the title 32 times, most recently in 2007. Great Britain on the other hand have been crowned champions 10 times, with their historic 2015 victory – the Brits’ first since 1936.

The teams last met at the same venue seven years ago, during the Brits title run in 2015. On a famous weekend in Glasow, the British team clinched a 3-2 win, thanks to two dominant singles victories from Andy Murray and an iconic comeback from James Ward to overturn a two set deficit against John Isner, taking the fifth set 15-13.



On paper, this could be the most eagerly anticipated match of Group D, with two Davis Cup heavyweights going head-to-head. The Brits are in strong form at the moment, with four British men having reached the world’s top 50 in singles earlier this week. Cam Norrie is at a career high world No.8 at the moment, following a fourth round bout at the US Open and semi-final at Wimbledon, while Dan Evans battled past both Taylor Fritz and Tommy Paul en route to the Montreal Masters semi-finals. Meanwhile, Murray also made the third round at the US Open, knocking out the then world No.27 Francisco Cerundolo in his opening match.

On rankings, the Brits have the best doubles tandem in the competition, with the world No.1 and No.3. Joe Salisbury comes to Glasgow having become Britain’s most successful men’s doubles player in the Open Era, having clinched a third title at the US Open, while Neal Skupski finished runner-up.


However, the Americans come in with a very dangerous team of their own. World No.12 Taylor Fritz won his first Masters title in Indian Wells this season as well as a second Rothesay International Eastbourne. Tommy Paul has also enjoyed a promising season to date, reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon and third round at the US Open – losing out to future runner-up Casper Ruud in five-sets.

The other half of the US Open men’s doubles title winning team – Rajeev Ram – will provide a difficult challenge for the Brits. His deadly forehand, married up with another powerhouse in Jack Sock, will be a strong pairing against any team.
