    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Although the U.S. won this weekend's first-round Davis Cup tie against Switzerland on a home court in Birmingham, Ala., with seeming ease (credit Roger Federer with an assist), it was still a historic occasion. Three Team USA play...

  2. Blake disappoints enthusiastic Birmingham crowd

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - It's Davis Cup weekend, and you know what that means: happy, shiny people (15,000-plus, in this case), waving flags, chanting, blowing noisemakers, screaming and ... groaning, as a proverbial home nation hero, beset by Davis Cup hee-...

  3. Closed-door decision an obvious political stunt

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    The decision by Sweden to hold the Davis Cup tie with Israel (next weekend) in Malmo, a city with a supercharged political atmosphere, was unfortunate, if understandable. What is not comprehensible is why the Swedish Tennis Federation or the Internat...

  4. Nalbandian solely culpable for Davis Cup debacle

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    It was supposed to have been a coronation. Instead, as everyone who watched the Davis Cup final this weekend saw, it became a demolition. Those awful crashing and splintering sounds you heard? They were the sounds of David Nalbandian's legacy in Arge...

  5. Del Potro just what the doctor ordered

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Argentina is by all counts the best tennis nation that has never won the Davis Cup. If you have any doubts about the value of home-field advantage in the competition (in other words, if you believe that holding the international competition as a kind...

  6. Querrey, Del Potro stand out in Davis Cup

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    You could call this a tale of two rookies -- one of whom had a good weekend, while the other one had a great weekend. I'm talking about Sam Querrey of the U.S. and Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina, respectively. If you want to get all technical abo...

  7. Don't dispute the pageantry of Davis Cup

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    The reason Davis Cup is such a great event, and why the basic format should be preserved at all cost, was in great evidence during Day 1 play. To fully understand why, ask yourself these questions: • How would you like Andy Roddick's chan...

  8. Davis Cup good chance for Querrey

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Sam Querrey makes his debut as a U.S. Davis Cup player on the red clay against heavily favored Spain (led by Rafael Nadal) at the end of next week, and although this is a semifinal, the decision to play Querrey will remind some pundits of Pete Sampra...

  9. My Davis Cup clutch players

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    This three-day Davis Cup weekend is the showcase for the storied and often beleaguered competition. We're down to the Final 8, which is the most interesting stage for tennis, given that the first round always has a number of mismatches. Still, th...

  10. Beware France

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    I have just five words for the U.S. Davis Cup squad now that the first-round of the competition is over: "Well done and ... beware France." Andy Roddick and his crew, the defending Davis Cup champs, survived the ugly weekend on ugly clay in Austr...

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    In tennis, we have our own version of Super Tuesday -- it's called the first round of Davis Cup, and it's in progress as you read this, and will still be in progress after you read this, unless you are a slow reader. A very slow reader. Basically, y...

  12. Kudos to the captain of America

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    It's unequivocally true that the U.S. Davis Cup squad that beat Russia in the final this weekend to end a 12-year U.S. drought is Andy Roddick's team. But by the end of the final, it seemed equally true that this was U.S. captain Pat McEnroe's Davis ...

  15. Best in show at Davis Cup

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    The come-from-behind Russian win was spectacular and Andy Roddick's third-day heroics for team USA were the definition of "clutch", but the most compelling story at the end of another Nationalistic Orgy Weekend (aka Davis Cup) wasn't about the Big Da...

  16. Colorful history against Sweden

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Nobody can say Sweden owns the United States in Davis Cup play; the U.S. leads the overall series 8-3. But the American lead in the Open era -- the period that matters most -- is just 4-3, so you could say the Swedes periodically rent U.S. in order t...
