On Wednesday, the USTA announced that the Davis Cup qualifier between the United States and Colombia will be played in Reno, Nevada on March 4-5. The match will take place at the Reno Events Center, and will mark the first Davis Cup match in Nevada since 1995, when the United States played Sweden in Las Vegas.

“Davis Cup events in the U.S. amount to week-long celebrations of tennis, and we’re excited to bring that to Reno — a region with a rich tennis community and great USTA Section support,” said Megan Rose, USTA's Managing Director of Major Events.

The team rosters should be finalized sometime in February, with the players needing to be announced no later than 28 days before the match. Mardy Fish, a former world-ranked No. 7 in the world, is the United States captain.

“It’s a privilege to welcome the U.S. Tennis Association to Northern Nevada,” said Visit Reno Tahoe President and CEO Charles Harris. “This is a great opportunity for the Reno Tahoe community to experience professional tennis, and also a great honor for the athletes who work so hard to represent the USA at the very highest level. We’re all looking forward to an exciting tournament.”

The United States and Colombia have met four times prior in the Davis Cup, with each side winning two of those matches. They last met in the Group Stage of the 2021 Davis Cup last year in Turin, Italy.
