The United States routed Russia, 3-0, in the World Team Cup at Duesseldorf, Germany, getting singles victories from Pete Sampras and Michael Chang and a doubles victory from Richey Reneberg and Patrick McEnroe.

Sergei Bruguera won in singles and doubles to lead defending champion Spain past Switzerland, 2-1, and set up a showdown with the United States for the blue group title.

Sampras defeated Alexander Volkov, 7-5, 6-1. He played more steadily than the Russian, who gambled on hitting winners.

"That's his game," Sampras said. "He makes it, he doesn't make it. Today he made a lot of errors, and I played a whole lot better."

Chang breezed past Andrei Chesnokov, 6-1, 6-4, in the other singles match, and Reneberg and McEnroe beat Volkov and Andrei Olhovskiy, 6-3, 6-4.

In the Swiss-Spanish singles, Jakob Hlasek beat Carlos Costa, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, and Bruguera won his eighth consecutive singles match at the event by rolling past Marc Rosset, 6-4, 6-1.
