United States stars Sam Querrey and John Isner favorites for Davis Cup victory
The Davis Cup World Group semifinal will begin on Friday in Gijon, Spain. The draws between United States and Spain were announced on Thursday. Tough battles have been scheduled between the two countries.
Sam Querrey will play against Nicolas Almagro in the first singles event on Friday. The second singles event on Friday is scheduled between John Isner and David Ferrer.
Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan will lead United States in the doubles event. Their Spanish counterparts will be Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopes. The event will takes place on Saturday.
John Inser and David Ferrer will meet again on Sunday. Their match will be followed by the last semifinal match of the Davis Cup. The match will be the second episode between Sam Querrey and Nicolas Almagro.
Sam Querrey doesn’t care for opening first or playing second. However, the young American believes John Isner will have to bring out his best to defeat David Ferrer on Friday.
Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan can boast about superb chemistry, after all they are twins, but the duo should be prepared for some heavy hitting from Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopes.
Sam Querrey, who is playing in the Davis Cup for the first time since 2010, believes United States can top their competitors.
“It is really exciting to be back on the team,” Sam Querrey said in his press conference on Thursday.
“It has been a few years since I played back in 2010. I was out last year with elbow surgery but I have come back and I feel like I am playing really well. I am excited to be part of this team and I am really looking forward to it. The handful of Davis Cup teams I have played in the past have been really fun, it is exciting to play on a team every now and then.”
“I didn’t really have a preference playing first or second,” Sam Querrey added. “Either way David Ferrer is a tough player, it is going to be a tough match.”
