The only people who care about it are the McEnroes and some fans in Argentina. I think it's just a distraction now, the way the Olympics are a distraction for NBA players. Does anyone care who's country has the best team one year? (Or more accurately, which country was able to get more of their top ranked players to actually play and/or give a crap.) I used to get annoyed about Johnny Mac going on and on about how important it was for Pete and Andre to play Davis Cup. Why, so they can go to some play on carpet against a player with a highly partisan crowd and possibly get injured? With tennis being an individual sport, and with successful players living anywhere they choose (and not necessarily in their home country), the national pride thing in tennis rings a little false to me. I know this might be controversial to say, but I'm pretty apathetic about it. I can't remember the last time they even showed it on TV in the U.S.
