The U.S. Virgin Islands’ men’s national tennis team ended pool play on a sour note at the Davis Cup Americas Group III qualifying tournament, losing to host team Costa Rica 3-0 on Friday.

The loss gave the USVI a 0-4 record in Pool A, and sends the team on to face Bermuda (1-4 in Pool B) today in the ninth-place match at the Costa Rica Country Club in Escazu, Costa Rica.
