SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two people with knowledge of the event say the first-round Davis Cup match between Britain and the United States will be played at Petco Park from Jan. 31-Feb. 2.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity on Monday 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.

The two venues considered for the match were Petco Park, home to the Padres since 2004, and the Embarcadero.
