Uruguay and Dominican Republic are tied at 1-1 going into day two's doubles in Montevideo. Marcel Felder got the home team off to the idea start on Friday with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 win over Dominican Republic's Roberto Cid but the visitors hit back in the second rubber.

Jose Hernandez renewed the Dominican challenge with an efficient 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 which ensured that the tie will still be live for Sunday's reverse singles.
