The United States must sweep Sunday's reverse singles to advance to the April quarterfinals. The tentative schedule calls for world No. 6 Andy Murray to play Sam Querrey with Donald Young meeting Briton James Ward.

Britain had grabbed a 2-0 lead In Friday's opening singles as Murray dispatched Young and Ward rallied to overcome Querrey in five sets.
