– The USTA announced today that single-day tickets for the 2013 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group First Round tie between the United States and Brazil at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, February 1-3, have been released. Single-day tickets will be available for public sale starting on Monday, January 14.

The best-of-five match series begins Friday, February 1, with two singles matches, featuring each country’s No. 1 player against the other country’s No. 2 player.  Saturday’s schedule features the pivotal doubles match.  The final day of play on Sunday will feature two “reverse singles” matches, when the No. 1 players square off followed by the No. 2 players meeting each other in the final match. Play on Friday and Saturday will begin at 1:30 p.m. and play on Sunday will start at 11:30 a.m. All matches are best-of-five sets until one nation clinches the tie. A revised schedule for Sunday may take place if a team clinches in the third or fourth match.

The U.S. is 109-16 all-time in Davis Cup ties played at home and undefeated in Florida (6-0). This will be the seventh Davis Cup tie played in the state of Florida and first since the U.S. defeated Sweden, 4-1, in the 2004 quarterfinal at the Delray Beach Tennis Center.
