The draw for the 2011 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group was held Wednesday in Brussels, with the U.S. being drawn to face Chile away in the opening round.
The opening rounds will all be played March 4-6 with Serbia hosting India, Sweden hosting Russia, the Czech Republic hosting Kazakhstan, Argentina hosting Romania, Belgium hosting Spain, Croatia hosting Germany and Austria hosting France.
The U.S. recently secured its place in the World Group for 2011 with a 3-1 victory over Colombia in the World Group Playoffs, held Sept. 17-19.
If the U.S. defeats Chile in the opening round, it would host the winner of Spain-Belgium in the quarterfinals in July.
