    Just came across this on the Davis Cup website.

    most singles wins in DC play by American players:

    McEnroe 41

    Agassi 30

    Ashe 27

    Roddick 27

    Pretty amazing, I wonder how close he'll get to Mac before he's done. Wonder if the media has any idea of this.

    Also Mac's record in doubles was 18-2. The Bryans right now are at 14-1.

    People here like to rag on Andy and John, but you cannot dispute their dedication to Davis Cup. Mac has talked about it often, making it sound like skipping a Davis Cup tie was not an option (for him). Andy too is totally dedicated. One could make a good argument that he plays his best tennis at Davis Cup.

    Sampras's record is pretty suprising. 15-8.

    Pass Ashe? The only thing Andy will be passing this weekend is a kidney stone.

    lol. j/k. I'm a Roddick fan. I just thought it would be a funny joke.

    Looks like Roddick will stay at 29 wins in 2009.

    Why did Russia have to play at USA last year when it was the defending champion? Answer: countries take turns as host nation.

    Many times he played on a slow court so the opponent had the edge over him.
