Sept. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Sam Querrey was selected to join the U.S. Davis Cup team for its semifinal against Spain, with Mardy Fish unable to participate because of health issues.

Querrey, 24, will be joined by John Isner and the Bryan brothers, Mike and Bob, for the Sept. 14-16 matches in Gijon, Spain, U.S. captain Jim Courier said today. Argentina plays the Czech Republic in the other semifinal, in Buenos Aires.

With Rafael Nadal injured, Spain’s team will consist of David Ferrer, Nicolas Almagro, Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez, team captain Alex Corretja announced, according to the Tennis Channel.

“This is going to be just as tough, if not tougher, than anything we’ve faced this season,” Courier said in an interview with the network today.

Fish, who won a singles and doubles match for the U.S. in first-round play against Switzerland in February, withdrew from the U.S. Open yesterday prior to his fourth-round match against top-seeded Roger Federer because of an undisclosed health issue. Fish, 30, was sidelined for more than two months this year while being treated for an accelerated heartbeat.

“Obviously, disappointed that Mardy’s body is not allowing him to compete the way that he would like to,” Courier said. “Hopefully, he’ll be back playing again soon this fall.”
