"Last year’s quarterfinal in Winston-Salem was one of the most exciting events I have been a part of as Davis Cup captain and it truly set the tone for our Championship run,” said U.S. Davis Cup Captain Patrick McEnroe. “The team is taking this one step at a time, and we hope to have a positive result in Vienna so we can host the quarterfinal in Winston-Salem.”

Winston-Salem hosted the 2007 Davis Cup World Group Quarterfinal between the United States and Spain last April. The event was played in front of sold-out crowds that made the quarterfinal the third-highest-attended Davis Cup competition in U.S. history. The U.S. won the quarterfinal, 4-1. The team used that victory as a springboard to capture its first Davis Cup Championship in 12 years, going on to defeat Sweden in Gothenborg and then Russia in the final in Portland, Oregon in December.

Winston-Salem also hosted the 2001 Davis Cup World Group Play-off between the United States and India, which was won by the U.S., 4-1. It was the first Davis Cup match that Andy Roddick and James Blake played in the United States.

Founded in 1900, Davis Cup is the world’s largest annual international team competition with 131 countries competing this year. The U.S. is one of 16 nations competing for the 2008 Davis Cup title as part of the Davis Cup World Group. AIG is the official sponsor of the U.S. Davis Cup Team. Wilson is the official ball of the U.S. Davis Cup team.
