  • Tie Summary

    Spain and USA are old foes when it comes to Davis Cup having faced each other on ten previous occasions. The head-to-head score is currently locked at 5-5, but Spain have the upper-hand in recent times after winning their last two meetings, including an away victory in the World Group quarterfinals in 2011.

    Spain - the defending champions after beating Argentina in last year’s Final in Seville - are now firmly established as Davis Cup’s dominant force having triumphed five times since 2000. To reach this year’s World Group semifinals, the Spanish team recorded comprehensive home wins over Kazakhstan and Austria.

    USA are no strangers to lifting the trophy themselves. In fact, they have won the title 32 times, which is more than any other nation, although their last victory was in 2007. This season, the Americans have already claimed impressive away wins against Switzerland and France, both on clay.
