NEW YORK, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Top 6-ranked singles Andy Roddick and James Blake and the No. 1 doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan will play for the United States in the Davis Cup semifinals.
The U.S. team is to play Sweden in the Davis Cup semifinals Sept. 21-23 on an indoor hard court in Gothenburg, Sweden. The other semifinal sends defending champion Russia against Germany in Moscow. The format in each semifinal is best-of-five, with four singles matches and one doubles match.
The Davis Cup finals are scheduled for Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
Roddick is ranked fifth in the world, just ahead of No. 6 Blake. The Bryans, who are twin brothers, have been ranked No. 1 in doubles all season.
U.S. Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe announced the team Tuesday, one day after Blake and the Bryans were ousted from the U.S. Open.
The United States owns an8-3 Davis Cup record against Sweden, but all of the losses have come in the team's last three trips to Gothenburg.
The United States has won 31 Davis Cup titles but hasn't won since 1995, the longest such U.S. drought without a championship.
