It will all go down to Querrey vs Evans and on home soil, i'll go with Querrey
Hmm interesting, the way i see it is that Murray will win both of his 2 rubbers for sure. The Bryan's should win the doubles rubber, and most probably will, but am i right in saying they have lost their last 2 DC rubbers against Brazil and Serbia? Murray and Fleming are a good doubles team, and are probably better then the teams that have previously beaten the Bryan's so i wouldn't completely rule out a GB win in this rubber. Isner would probably do Dan Evans, although Dan would be likely to dictate rallies, and the longer the game went on, the more i would fancy Dan's chances while Querrey is a joke at the minute. No confidence, no belief, very few wins and a ranking continually on the down, I would fancy Dan to beat him if they played tomorrow. That said, Sam can't be playing worse when this tie played then what he is playing now, but on current form, I wouldn't even put him in the US team. Jack Sock or someone like Bradley Klahn, who has won plenty of matches this year albeit at a lower level would be a better option. At least they have some confidence in their game and Klahn has infact beat Evans already this year in the US (aptos final), so I would be more worried if he played!
