U.S. Davis Cup debutant Sam Querrey will face world number one Rafael Nadal in the opening rubber of their semi-final against Spain starting tonight.

Andy Roddick will then take on world number five David Ferrer in Madrid's Las Ventas bullring.

Saturday's doubles will pitch Madrid-born Fernando Verdasco and Feliciano Lopez against Mike Bryan and replacement partner Mardy Fish, after the withdrawal of Bryan's twin brother Bob.

The winning team will play Argentina or Russia in the final.
