Didn't Courier take the team to the semi's last year beating Swiss and France, despite having no good players?

The OP is a legimate MTF experts. The other clowns responding to the thread obviously have not got a clue .

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Too many US tennis fans still think they should have players on Agassi and Sampras' level. They don't even have players on Roddick and Blake level atm. Need to be realistic.

If Fish was fully fit he'd be better than Querrey though IMO.

Courier and his on court interviews are laughable. he tries so hard to be funny than to ask meaningful Qs...

I started to laugh when Querrey missed easy forehand at 5:4 (deuce) in the 4th set after blowing MP and Courier started to nod like he wanted to say "That's right Sam, everything is under control, don't worry" Sam immediately netted easier overhead than previous FH.

I do think though, Courier wearing a freaking suit to coach a tennis team is ridiculous though.

If anything Courier has overachieved by getting Isner to beat Federer on clay in Davis Cup. Isner can lose to just about anyone if he's not getting enough done with his serve, especially when he seems to be in a confidence slump like he has lately. Also, he skipped the AO at the last minute with an injury so he may not have had much preparation.

I think Courier does a decent job and unlike you actually do believe he is very interested and exciting to take part in coaching Davis Cup. do understand, not all coaches are there just to yell or give advice verbally. some coaches do a great job of reinstilling confidence in a player through non verbal motions, nods, facial expressions. sometimes just having an experienced and well known mind and individual in the audience being your # 1 supporter watching you can make a big difference.

Courier works a lot with American players throughout the entire season and does more than you know as far as planning with the American team. just because he's not whispering ideas into the players ears every second means nothing.

there is no way you could cut the pie of having a 4 time Grand Slam winner as a David Cup coach as a bad thing. trust me, most people that accomplished are not interested / would find it boring and not worth their time to bother helping with Davis Cup.

American Davis Cup is fortunate to have Courier, and the truth is that we are in a lull of particularly good players right now so he is the last thing to worry about. Querrey struggling against Alvarez is the problem. dude is a headcase
