  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. Davis Cup algorithm

    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...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Top Davis Cup dogs

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    As we prepare for a Davis Cup weekend that could very well develop into an old-fashioned barnburner, it's appropriate to take a look at the real Davis Cup warriors. This can be a tricky undertaking, because the statistics can be deceptive. Let's sta...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Davis Cup double trouble

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    They are, in some ways, the quintessential old-school American tennis players. They're tall, raw-boned, loose-limbed and baby-faced. They're from southern California, and they never made any bones about being anything more than what they presently ar...

    Break up the Italians! That's the cry resounding all around tennis after another Fed Cup weekend that can only be called ... amusing. What's Fed Cup, you ask? Well, it's the women's version of Davis Cup. What's Davis Cup? Get outta here! It's...

  12. U.S. needs Blake to bounce back

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Just when it looked like things couldn't get much tougher for slumping U.S. Davis Cup staple James Blake, they did. Blake, playing No. 2 singles, opens the quarterfinals between the U.S. and Spain in Winston-Salem on Friday against the Spanish No. 1 ...

  13. Roddick rebounds on red clay

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    If you think about it, there couldn't have been a better way for Andy Roddick to get over the licking he took from Roger Federer in the Australian Open semifinals (Roddick won just six games) than the Davis Cup weekend that ended last Sunday. Going...

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    It's official -- they blew the final whistle on tennis for 2006 in Moscow on Sunday, and it couldn't have come much later. Russia and Argentina (the Boston Red Sox of Davis Cup: 52 years played, zero final-round wins) went down to the wire, with Mara...
