Tennis: Davis Cup Preview. Mon. Feb. 28

The United States has some hurdles to jump if they want to win this event.
Jim Courier is part captain, part trainer heading into his first match leading the U.S. Davis Cup team.
Andy Roddick had to withdraw from the Delray Beach tournament because of flulike symptoms. Sam Querrey's shoulder is sore. Mardy Fish isn't available because of a thyroid problem.
The Americans will play outdoors on clay at Santiago, Chile, on March 4-6.
Courier said during a conference call Tuesday that "these guys are tough." He expects the eighth-ranked Roddick to recover in plenty of time.
The 22nd-ranked Querrey wasn't on the four-man roster the U.S. had to provide to the International Tennis Federation. But he is scheduled to travel to Chile, and Courier can change as many as two players before the final lineup is submitted March 3.
Here are the teams and the first matchup for the first round in the America’s zone group.
CHILE v USA Venue: Estadio Nacional, Santiago ,
 CHI (clay – outdoors) Chile Paul Capdeville Jorge Aguilar Nicolas Massu Guillermo Rivera-Aranguiz Captain: Hans Gildemeister
