Robby Ginepri begins his stint as Davis Cup coach this week, assisting captain Jim Courier as the American team plays Serbia in the first round of the team competition.

A former Davis Cup player, Ginepri retired three years ago and set up his own academy before joining the USTA as a coach and then being named to the Davis Cup position. He is also currently working with Frances Tiafoe.

"There’s a real easy fit for him to come into this team," Courier was quoted as saying by the USTA website. "He’s been coaching now for several years.

"He also knows a lot of these guys—he’s friendly with them. He’s played in Davis Cup, so he understands the scenarios."


The team, led by Sam Querrey and John Isner, is favored on the road against a Serbia that does not have its top player, Novak Djokovic, who is experiencing more injury problems.
