The USTA has announced the U.S. Davis Cup Team will come to Reno for the first time as the U.S. takes on Colombia in a 2022 Davis Cup by Rakuten Qualifier March 4-5 at the Reno Events Center.
Davis Cup is the World Cup of Men’s Tennis and is the largest international team competition in world sport, with nearly 150 nations competing each year. The qualifier versus Colombia is a best-of-five match series played over two days, beginning with two singles matches on Friday, March 4. A doubles match and two reverse singles matches will follow on Saturday, March 5, with the winner advancing to the 2022 Davis Cup Finals – a 16-nation, multi-city competition held later this year with dates and locations to be announced.
Tickets for the Qualifier can be purchased at usta.com/daviscup or via Ticketmaster.
The current U.S. team is captained by former world No. 7 Mardy Fish. The participating players for both the United States and Colombia will be announced no later than 28 days prior to the start of the competition.
Davis Cup has only come to Nevada once before, a 1995 matchup between the U.S. and Sweden at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas that the U.S. won en route to winning the title that year. The United States owns an all-time record of 114-19 when playing at home and last won the title in 2007.
The U.S. and Colombia have split their four Davis Cup meetings, with the Colombians winning the latest matchup in the group stages of the 2021 Finals last fall in Turin, Italy.
