SAN DIEGO (AP)

The first-round Davis Cup match between the United States and Britain will be played at Petco Park - home of Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres - from Jan. 31-Feb. 2, two people with knowledge of the event said Monday.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the Padres, U.S. Tennis Association and the San Diego Sports Commission planned a news conference on Tuesday at the downtown ballpark.

The tennis court is expected to be set up in the outfield at the 42,000-seat facility.

The teams met in the first Davis Cup match in 1900, with the Americans going on to win the event a record 32 times.

Britain is in the world group for the first time since 2008, its prospects boosted by the return of Wimbledon champion Andy Murray.
