The most successful nation in Davis Cup by BNP Paribas history will be looking to add to its 25-year-long stint in the World Group when it takes on Slovak Republic at home in September. These two nations last met at the same stage in 2003, when USA ran out 3-2 winners in Bratislava.
Slovak Republic have already recorded wins over Latvia and Austria this year, both of which were wrapped up by the end of the second day's play. USA, however, represent a much greater challenge, despite its loss to Great Britain earlier this year. The Americans have only dropped out of the World Group once since its inception in 1981 and will be the favourites to bounce straight back to the top tier of the competition.
