WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- The Untied States Tennis has selected the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. as the site of a first-round Davis Cup match against Austria from Feb. 6-8.
The U.S. will try for its 32nd Davis Cup title in the best-of-five series.
Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe has yet to name his four-man roster, but world No. 1 Andy Roddick is likely to be part of the team. Roddick led the U.S. to a 3-2 victory over Slovakia in the World Group playoff round.
"We know we're coming to a tennis hotbed, and look forward to the fans supporting our team," said McEnroe. "We have a nucleus of dedicated players including the world's number one in singles and doubles, who are committed to winning the cup this year."
The Americans will be competing in New England for the first time since a quarterfinal against Australia in 1999.
