“Nothing compares to the atmosphere of playing Davis Cup.” says Roddick.

Andy Roddick has opted to return to the United States Davis Cup team next season after missing the 2010 event. The world number eight said: “I have always said that Davis Cup is something you should commit to for the entire season and not when it is convenient.” The United States and new coach Jim Courier will play at Chile in the first round on 4-6 March on clay in Santiago.

Courier, who replaced Patrick McEnroe, added: “Having Andy commit to the 2011 campaign is huge for our team.” Roddick has an impressive record in Davis Cup singles matches – winning 31 and losing 11 – and has the second best record of all American players behind John McEnroe (41). The 2003 US Open champion, 28, added: “Trying to win the Davis Cup again is a top priority for me in 2011. Nothing compares to the atmosphere of playing a Davis Cup match and representing your country.”

He will be playing under new coach Courier after the former world number one overcame the likes of Todd Martin to get the post left vacant when McEnroe stood down in September.
