GIJON, Spain -- It has been two years since Sam Querrey played his last Davis Cup match, having to miss the competition and a few months on the ATP Tour last year due to elbow surgery.
But he has worked his game and ranking back amongst the best in the world yet again and is coming off a tremendously successful summer season, which included a title win in Los Angeles and a surge back up the rankings to No. 26. Now this week, he makes his Davis Cup return in the semifinals against Spain as the team’s No. 2 singles player and will play the opening match of the tie Friday against Spain’s No. 1 player, David Ferrer.
The order of play for the tie was determined at the official draw ceremony, with John Isner, the U.S. No. 1, playing Nicolas Almagro in the second singles match Friday. For the doubles rubber Saturday, the world No. 1 doubles team and reigning US Open champions Bob and Mike Bryan play doubles world No. 8 Marc Lopez and doubles world No. 13 Marcel Granollers. On Sunday, Isner leads off against Ferrer, and then Querrey closes the tie against Almagro.....
