SUNRISE, Florida (AP) — Argentina’s Leonardo Mayer will play Israel’s Bar Botzer to open Davis Cup play on Friday.
The draw held Thursday also pits Argentina’s Carlos Berlocq against Dudi Sela in the Davis Cup World Group playoff. It was originally a home match for Israel, but because of safety concerns, the International Tennis Federation moved the event to Florida.
On Saturday, the doubles will feature Argentina’s Federico Delbonis and Horacio Zeballos against Israel’s Jonathan Erlilch and Andy Ram. If reverse single are necessary in the best-of-five series on Sunday, Mayer will face Sela and Berlocq will play Botzer.
The winner will be among 16 teams to compete for the 2015 Davis Cup. The loser will play next year in World Group II.
