Definitely new heights - especially with Isner. In all senses of the world. Regardless of the pre-matchup statistics and odds, both the wins over Switzerland and France are huge upsets, well done to team USA. France was a bigger upset than Switzerland and Spain will be the biggest upset of them all should USA make it happen.

Austria made the quarterfinals for first time in 17 years if not then a trip to Moscow to play Russia and there was also a possible away tie in France, in Roland Garros with Noah as commentator.

J.M.Del Potro (ARG) d. M.Cilic (CRO) 61 62 61
 
Pretty good win for DelPo, Cilic must have been off a little as he usually gives DelPo a better match.

Draw made for World Group play-offs

The World Group play-offs are made up of the eight losing nations from the World Group first round, plus the eight winning nations from last weekend's Zone Group I second round ties.
The nations are seeded based on the new Davis Cup rankings, published on 9 April, with the eight seeded nations being drawn against the eight unseeded nations.
The winners in the World Group play-offs will take their place in next year's World Group, while the losers will compete in Group I.


The Draw for the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-offs, to be played on 14-16 September, was made today in London.
 
Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan were first out of the hat with the Kazakhs, who reached the World Group quarterfinals in 2011, drawn at home. It will be a first Davis Cup meeting between the two Asian neighbours.
 
The blockbuster tie of the round was next to be announced as Germany gained home advantage over Australia. The Germans are bidding to stay in the World Group for an eighth straight season, while the Aussies are searching for a return to the elite 16 for the first time since 2007. Australia lead 4-2 in their head-to-head series.
 
After falling to Croatia at Hyogo's Bourbon Beans Dome earlier in the year, Japan are at home again as they bid to maintain their World Group status. The visitors this time are Israel, who defeated Portugal to reach this stage.
 
Sweden have their work cut out to continue their long stint in the World Group after they were dealt a tricky away tie against Belgium, who ended Great Britain's World Group hopes on their last outing.
 
South Africa's reward for reaching the World Group play-offs is a home tie against Canada, who are an emerging force in the competition. The only previous meeting between the two nations was in 1913 with the Canadians triumphing 4-1.
 
Brazil and Russia face off in a repeat of the tie they played at the same stage of the competition in 2011. Russia had home advantage on that occasion and used it to their advantage as they overturned a 2-1 deficit to win 3-2 in an enthralling tie. Brazil are at home this time.
 
Italy and Chile also met in the World Group play-offs last year, a tie that the Italians won to stretch their unbeaten record against Chile to 5-0. That clash was played in Santiago, so Italy benefit from home court advantage this year.
 
Switzerland, who are playing in the World Group play-offs for the eighth successive season, travel to Netherlands as they bid to preserve their status in the top flight. The Dutch will go into the tie full of confidence after recording back-to-back 5-0 wins over Finland and Romania.
