Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka to meet in Antwerp final

  Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka to meet in Antwerp final Major champions Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka have an opportunity to end their long wait for a singles title in Antwerp on Sunday.Murray's career was in doubt after he underwent hip resurfacing surgery in January, but the former world number one could add to his title haul on Sunday after a 3-6 7-5 6-2 defeat of Humbert.

An arm injury has prevented the eighth-ranked Nishikori from playing since his U.S. Open third-round loss to Alex de Minaur in August.

"So sad to miss this," Nishikori wrote on Twitter.

Germany's team is led by 41st-ranked Jan-Lennard Struff in the absence of sixth-ranked Alexander Zverev, who has instead chosen to play a series of exhibition matches against Roger Federer in Mexico and South America.

The 31st-ranked Taylor Fritz is the highest-ranked player on the U.S. team alongside Reilly Opelka, Sam Querrey, Francis Tiafoe and Jack Sock.

The U.S. Tennis Association said the team would be its youngest in the Davis Cup for a decade, with an average age of 25. The U.S. plays Canada and Italy in the group stage.

The new-look Davis Cup format sees 18 nations compete from Nov. 18 through 24.

The tournament starts with round-robin matches in six three-team groups with the top eight teams qualifying for quarterfinals.
