The team

USA booked its place in Malaga thanks to victories over Great Britain and Kazakhstan in Glasgow, but fell to Netherlands, meaning it finished as Group B runner-up. Captain Mardy Fish, who was forced to watch on from afar while recovering from Covid-19, will be particularly pleased with his doubles team, Rajeev Ram and Jack Sock, who scored tight wins against the Brits and the Dutch.

The United States never wants to miss an edition of the Finals although luck has not smiled on them till now. In Glasgow, they achieved their first goal: they have progressed beyond the Group Stage for the first time in three appearances.
