Davis cup tennis match goes to the Russians, America needs to cultivate more young players

Excerpt from the Davis cup site, America takes it on the knose again in international tennis play. America needs to cultivate more top flight tennis players, I know where I coach there are juniors tennis programs but in other parts of the country this is not the case, Right now there is Only one American in the top ten player in the world, Andy Rodick, We can should be able to do better.
Safin meets his destiny as he brings the Cup home
It was the same, but different. Marat Safin had been here before, having helped Russia to lift the Davis Cup in 2002 by playing three matches in three days. But this time, he had won the third point in a decisive fifth rubber, and done so in his hometown in front of his adoring public. It doesn’t get much better for any player.

Safin defeated Jose Acasuso 63 36 63 76(5) to hand Russia the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas for the second time, denying Argentina the chance to become just the 13th different nation to raise the priceless trophy. This triumph in Moscow permanently banishes the memory of painful losses in the Davis Cup Finals held in this city in 1994 and 1995. Russia is a vastly different country to what it was then, and this is a completely different team, one representative of the new Russian order. With its strength in depth, other nations should be warned: it has the potential to dominate the world’s biggest team competition for many years to come.
