One break was enough to seal the opening set for the American pair and after both teams lost serve once in the second it was eventually settled by a tiebreak. The breaker was a marathon affair with Isner and Fish coming out on top 12 to leave Kazahkstan with an 0-2 record.
The result leaves the USA joint top of the round robin Blue Group with two wins from their opening two matches in Dusseldorf and a win against Argentina in their final match would seal a final berth for the second consecutive year..
