Saturday's contest in the first-ever Davis Cup meeting between these two nations makes Sunday's scheduled reverse singles meaningless, while the winners advanced to July's quarterfinals to face either the United States or Switzerland.

The United States holds a 2-1 advantage over the Swiss in Birmingham, Ala.
