A rivalry steeped in history renews today in Glasgow, Scotland, as the U.S. and Great Britain clash to continue their quests to win the competition they founded.
The two nations that contested the first Davis Cup tie in 1900 meet today for the 21st time. The U.S. leads the all-time rivalry with an 11-9 record, through Great Britain emerged the victor in their last two meetings: in 2014, at the San Diego Padres’ Petco Park in San Diego, Calif., and again in 2015, at the very same venue in Glasgow in which they’ll play today.
Today’s tie is the first of three the Americans will play in Glasgow, with hopes of advancing to the ultimate stage of this year’s Davis Cup competition: the knockout-style quarterfinals that will crown this year’s Davis Cup champion in Malaga, Spain, on November 22-27.
