The doubles team of Mardy Fish and Mike Bryan propelled the U.S. to the next round of Davis Cup play with a win over the Swiss team of Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3. The win came a day after Fish beat Wawrinka in a singles match and John Isner stopped Federer in singles play.

Teaming up for only the second time, Fish and Bryan comfortably handled the 2008 Olympics doubles champions in front of roughly 7,000 fans.

Bryan was partnered with Fish because his regular partner, and twin brother Bob, was unavailable because of the birth of his daughter last week.

“This is probably going down as one of the most memorable (wins),” said Bryan, who played on the 2007 winning team.

The doubles victory gave the Americans a 3-0 lead in the best-of-five, first-round series. They advanced to the quarterfinals in April when they again will be on the road—against France or Canada.
