An exclusive pre-sale for USTA members begins on Monday, February 25, at 10 a.m. MST and ends on Tuesday, February 26, at 11:59 p.m. MST (or while supplies last).
The best-of-five match series will be played at the Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho, April 5-7.

The best-of-five match series begins Friday, April 5, 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. All matches are best-of-five sets until one nation clinches the tie.
This will be the second consecutive home tie for the U.S. Davis Cup team after winning the 2013 World Group First Round in Jacksonville, Fla., against Brazil. This will be just the third home match as U.S. Davis Cup Captain for Jim Courier and just the fourth home tie for the U.S. since 2009. In that time, the U.S. team has played seven road matches--all on clay. The U.S. is 110-16 all-time in Davis Cup ties played at home.
Idaho is the 34th state to host a U.S. Davis Cup tie.
This match will mark just the second meeting between the U.S. and Serbia in Davis Cup competition. Serbia won the only meeting, 3-2, in the 2010 World Group First Round in Belgrade by a Novak Djokovic-led team. Serbia is only one of three countries to have a winning record against the U.S. Davis Cup Team. World No. 1 Djokovic has committed to playing in this quarterfinal.
Founded in 1900, Davis Cup is the world’s largest annual international men’s team competition with 130 nations competing this year. The U.S. leads all nations with 32 Davis Cup titles. The United States holds a 213-66 all-time Davis Cup record and owns the longest uninterrupted run in the World Group, dating back to 1989.
