ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) -- Goran Ivanisevic expects to play doubles for Croatia against the United States in February's opening round of the Davis Cup.

"It's not certain that I'd be ready in time for singles, so I'll most likely play just in the doubles match,'' the 2001 Wimbledon champion told Croatian monthly Tennis Review in an interview to be published next week.

The left-handed Ivanisevic has been off the tour since having left shoulder surgery in May. He began training in October and is unsure whether he'll play in any tournaments before the Feb. 7-9 Davis Cup matches in Zagreb.

Croatia said Monday it had chosen a fast, indoor carpet surface for the best-of-five series.

Mario Ancic, who upset Roger Federer in Wimbledon's first round this year, and Ivan Ljubicic are expected to play singles for Croatia.

James Blake and Andy Roddick probably will play singles for the United States. They were on the team that lost 3-2 to France in this year's semifinals.

The U.S.-Croatia winner will face Spain or Belgium in the quarterfinals in April.
