Just to throw the question out there. I read a comment on zootennis, where someone wrote in asking, if the US Davis Cup team would be better served by a top college coach such as Manny Diaz or Peter Smith captaining Davis Cup, rather than a former player. I tend to agree with this. After all, these guys are "leaders". They know how to deal with team situations and how to motivate a team. Yesterday, our singles players just didn't seem ready to go. I doubt that would have happened with one of those guys out there. Not to say that there aren't other fine college coaches who could also get the job done. The person who wrote the article gave reference to Duke's Coach K., who has now coached USA basketball for I believe the last 6 years, assisted by NBA and college coaches. Of course USA basketball has been quite successful and he has dealt with the players personalities well. Just throwing the question out there. I'm sure guys like Jim Courier know tennis well, but do they know what to do as far as what's best for the "team" Let me know what you guys think.
