SAN DIEGO — U.S. captain Jim Courier is impressed by the setting where his team will face a British team highlighted by Wimbledon champion Andy Murray in the first round of the Davis Cup.
A clay court has been set up in left field of the San Diego Padres' ballpark for this weekend's matches. It's the first time Davis Cup matches will be played in an open-air baseball stadium.
The best-of-five matches are Friday through Sunday. Thursday's draw will determine the order of singles play.
Britain and the U.S. played the first Davis Cup match in 1900. They have met 18 times, with the Americans leading 11-7.
