US Davis Cup All Time Lineup

Vincent RobletoCorrespondent IAugust 6, 2008

The United States has a storied history in men's tennis.  Until the recent ascendancy of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, Americans have been in competition to win every event.  As a result, the United States could field an all-time Davis Cup team capable of handing an out-and-out hide-tanning to any other nation's all-time team.

Singles Seeds:

1.    John McEnroe—I’d take him in his prime to face any country’s all-time number one.

2.    Pete Sampras—Pistol Pete has the firepower and mental edge to blow any player off the court. 

3.    Andre Agassi—The best return-of-serve in the game’s history, and the only all-surface champion of all four Grand Slams.

4.    Jimmy Connors—Invented baseline tennis.


Doubles Pairings:

5-6. Pancho Gonzales and Arthur Ashe—Unbeatable pairing of mental toughness.

7-8. Michael Chang and Andy Roddick—A balance of firepower and foot speed.

9-10. Jim Courier and Don Budge—The best backhand in the game’s history paired with the most dominant forehand.
