WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The U.S. Tennis Association says former top-10 player Mardy Fish is the country's new Davis Cup captain.

Fish's appointment to succeed Jim Courier was announced Wednesday.

Fish's duties will include working with the USTA player development program, something Fed Cup captain Kathy Rinaldi will be doing, too.

The overhauled Davis Cup Finals make their debut in Madrid from Nov. 18-24.
