Who can Great Britain expect to play in the Davis Cup fixture against the United States in February 2014?

GB will face the USA in the Davis Cup next year after being drawn against them in the first-round of the elite World Group.

Here, we take a look at who Leon Smith's men could come up against.

BOB AND MIKE BRYAN

The world-famous Bryan brothers secured their number-one doubles status for another year before they had even taken to the court at the US Open.

It was the ninth consecutive time the siblings have finished at the top of the pile, with their grand slam honours in 2013 totalling the Australian and French Opens as well as Wimbledon.

They are no strangers to the Davis Cup either, having won a commitment award in April after 11 years of competition.

It would not be unfair to say they will be the favourites, regardless of which British pair they face.

JOHN ISNER

Isner is the USA's highest-ranked male singles player at number 15, but he remains better known to British fans for his world-record encounter with Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon which lasted 11 hours and five minutes.

He has a monster serve but Andy Murray may not fear him too much.

SAM QUERREY

Like Isner, Querrey has a big serve and poses a danger, but with a world ranking of 31 he is hardly one of the elite.

He made the last 32 of two slams this year, losing to Gilles Simon in France and Stanislas Wawrinka in Australia.
