The United States has used the same line-up - world No. 8 Andy Roddick, No. 10 James Blake, and the world's second-ranked doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan - for 10 of the last 11 Davis Cup matches, including all four wins during its 2007 title run. World No. 2 and five-time reigning US Open champion Roger Federer has announced his intention to play in the first round of Davis Cup for the first time since 2004 and is expected to be joined by No. 13 Stanislas Wawrinka, with whom he won the Olympic gold medal in men's doubles this past summer in Beijing.
The best-of-five match series begins Friday, with two singles matches, featuring each country's No. 1 player against the other country's No. 2 player. Saturday's schedule features the pivotal doubles match. The final day of play on Sunday will feature two "reverse singles" matches, when the No. 1 players square off followed by the No. 2 players meeting each other in the final match.
