    McEnroe to stay as Davis Cup captain through 2006

    November 21, 2004

    HOUSTON (AP) -- Patrick McEnroe will remain the U.S. Davis Cup captain through 2006.

    McEnroe is preparing his team for the Davis Cup final against Spain in Seville on Dec. 3-5. The team, which features Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish and twins Bob and Mike Bryan, is in the final for the first time since 1997.

    ``Patrick's unique style as a leader and as a person has attracted and connected with a special group of young American players,'' U.S. Tennis Association chief executive Arlen Kantarian said Sunday. ``We're thrilled to have him continue as captain.''

    McEnroe debuted as Davis Cup captain in 2001, succeeding brother John, and has a 7-3 record entering next month's title matches. McEnroe competed in Davis Cup in 1993, 1994 and 1996 and coached the U.S. men's team at the Athens Olympics.

    well, at least mardy fish knows he's got a starting spot through '06 as well, no matter how he plays in reality, he always gives the u.s. "the best chance to win." laughable!!

    captain ahab mcenroe, chasing that great white whale. at least if he wins, he'll have one-upped his brother at SOMEthing for once in his life. maybe then he'll just go away.
    I predict that after getting mauled in seville and flaming out in australia due to fatigue a la jcf, roddie quits the team.

    Yeah, Spadea better get plenty of ink refills for his pen and a big stack of paper, because he's probably going to have to write a lot more letters to PMac to get on the team for each tie over the next 2 years. :wink: :lol:
