What Jim Courier said about Fish being the Davis Cup captain
The former world no.1 commented
“Mardy is a terrific choice to be the new captain. His unbridled passion for the job and qualifications are excellent. He has the backing of the current players, is an experienced Davis Cup player in singles and doubles and has spent time working with the USTA player development team in Carson as a coach.
That skill set should serve him very well in leading the team.”
Mardy Fish humbled
“It’s been something that is a dream job for me, something that I won’t take for granted, and am completely honored. It’s just incredibly special to even be mentioned as a possible candidate.
To be the Davis Cup captain, the next Davis Cup captain, I’m incredibly humbled. I can’t even express how excited I am, how excited I am that the players have supported the decision. The friendships I’ve made throughout the years, relationships of all the players, not just the top players, is very special.”
