Team USA has reached its first Davis Cup World Group semifinal since 2012.

Jack Sock and Ryan Harrison toppled Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen 5-7, 7-6(1), 7-6(3), 6-4 to propel America to the sweep of Belgium at Belmont University in Nashville.

Team USA improves to 5-0 in Davis Cup play against Belgium in the countries' first meeting since 2005.

Sock and Harrison have a 7-4 doubles record together after Saturday’s victory. Harrison is the reigning French Open doubles champion and helped clinch the Americans’ win over Serbia in February with a doubles victory alongside Steve Johnson. Sock is ranked No. 28 and won his 10th ATP doubles title last month with John Isner at Indian Wells.

The Americans were broken in the opening set but did not surrender another break for the rest of the three-hour contest.

Team USA will face either Croatia or Kasakhstan in the semifinals in September. Croatian leads Kasakhstan 2-1 in their quarterfinal, and if they complete the victory they will host the Americans.

The Americans improved to 160-4 when they hold a 2-0 lead after Friday in Davis Cup ties. John Isner and Sam Querrey staked Team USA to the lead with singles victories on Friday.
