Glasgow: Andy Murray was on Thursday drawn to face Donald Young in Friday`s opening rubber of the Davis Cup World Group first-round tie between Great Britain and the United States.

The world number five will tackle world number 47 Young in the first match of the tie at Glasgow`s Emirates Arena, where the 27-year-old Scot can expect boisterous support.

The USA`s leading player, world number 20 John Isner, then tackles James Ward, before top-ranked doubles pairing Bob and Mike Bryan challenge Murray`s brother Jamie and Dominic Inglot in Saturday`s doubles.

Great Britain, beaten 3-2 by Italy in last season`s quarter-finals, trail the USA 11-8 in Davis Cup encounters.
