Isner, Querrey and Bryans lead US v Brazil



John Isner and Sam Querrey will join doubles stars Mike and Bob Bryan in the United States squad that will play Brazil next week in a first-round Davis Cup tie, the US Tennis Association said on Tuesday.

US officials revealed the line-up for the February 1-3 tie in a Twitter posting. The best-of-five matchup will be played in Jacksonville, Florida, on an indoor hardcourt.

Isner is the top-ranked American player at 13th in the world while Querrey is next at 22. The Bryan brothers are the world's top ranked doubles duo.

The Americans, who have won the trophy a record 32 times, have won three of four Davis Cup meetings with Brazil, including the most recent tie in 1997 when the US squad won in South America. The only Brazilian triumph came in 1966.

The US team, which lost to Spain in last year's semifinals, is captained by former world No 1 Jim Courier.

Brazil will feature 33rd-ranked Thomaz Bellucci, 145th-ranked Thiago Alves plus Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares, who each are among the four top doubles teams in the world with other partners.
