David Ferrer took down Andy Roddick in straight sets 7-6 (11), 7-5, 6-3 Friday night, to give the Spaniards a 2-0 lead over the United States after the first two singles matches of their Davis Cup quarterfinal.

The U.S. was relying on Roddick to rally the team after Spain’s Feliciano Lopez upset Mardy Fish in the opening match 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-7 (7), 8-6. Roddick started strong the first and second sets before dropping both. He surrendered the third, double-faulting on the final two points, moving his all-time Davis Cup record to 33-12.

Spain is looking to win its thirds Davis Cup championship in four years but must do so with out world No. 2 Rafael Nadal, who elected to skip the quarterfinal after losing in the Wimbledon final. Nadal helped his country win the Davis Cup in 2004, 2008 and 2009.
