U.S. advances in Davis Cup

  • Associated Press February 3, 2013

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sam Querrey beat Thiago Alves 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3) Sunday to give the United States a dramatic 3-2 victory over Brazil and a spot in the Davis Cup tennis quarterfinals.

The U.S. will host Serbia in the next round in Boise, Idaho, from April 5-7.

Querrey stepped up after teammate John Isner lost 2-6, 6-4, 6-7 (7), 6-4, 6-3 to Thomaz Bellucci earlier Sunday, forcing a deciding fifth match. It was the first time since 2000 that a U.S. team needed to win the fifth match to advance.
