MLAGA, Spain (AP) Taylor Fritz pulled the United States level with Italy at 1-1 in the Davis Cup quarterfinals on Thursday after Frances Tiafoe lost his singles. The tie will be decided in doubles.

No. 9-ranked Fritz beat Lorenzo Musetti 7-6 (8), 6-3 on the indoor hard-court in Mlaga after Lorenzo Sonego used his big serve to defeat Tiafoe a 6-3, 7-6 (7).

American pair Tommy Paul and Jack Sock were slotted to play Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini in doubles.

Fritz hit 12 aces and converted one break to better the No. 23-ranked Musetti for a second time after beating him at Wimbledon in June.

Sonego, ranked No. 45, struck 17 aces and never ceded a service game to Tiafoe. Sonego clinched the win after Tiafoe netted a forehand following a long rally to end the second-set tiebreaker.
