US looks to surprise favorite Spain in Davis Cup

Even without Rafael Nadal to contend with, the United States is facing the very difficult task of beating favorite Spain to reach the Davis Cup final.
Defending champion Spain welcomes the Americans having won the last two ties between the teams. Spain hasn't lost on clay, or on home soil, in 13 years.
While the U.S. has won its last four straight ties on clay, Spain has won 25 straight. Singles pair David Ferrer and Nicolas Almagro are a combined 21-1 on the surface, and have helped make Nadal's absence to injury a minor issue for captain Alex Corretja.
American pair Jon Isner and Sam Querrey are a combined 6-7 on clay.
Almagro says "we're a slight favorite."
