Davis Cup looks to Agassi appeal
By Mark Hodgkinson
The tennis world is falling over itself to welcome Andre Agassi back to the Davis Cup, with the American returning after a five-year absence. .....
As John McEnroe said earlier this season when discussing the Davis Cup: "Tennis players are innately selfish - they have to be".
As a former Davis Cup player and captain, McEnroe knows more than most that devotion to the national cause can possibly harm solo success.
It is also worth noting that Agassi was only persuaded to return when Patrick McEnroe, the United States captain, made a special trip to the player's home in Las Vegas and told him that his commitment need not be total. If they win the World Group first round, against Croatia in California, Agassi can pick and choose his ties.
Andre Agassi forever
