Courier wants attitude change on U.S. Davis Cup team

(Reuters) - U.S. Davis Cup captain Jim Courier would like to see an attitude change in his singles players when the Americans take on Serbia and world number one Novak Djokovic in a quarter-finals tie next month in Boise, Idaho. Courier said on Wednesday he expected to use the same team that beat Brazil 3-2 in their first-round tie, and wanted John Isner and Sam Querrey to show more "street-fighting" spirit in the April 5-7 matches at the Taco Bell Arena.

Feb 25 (Reuters) - Sam Querrey battered fellow American Michael Russell in the first round of the Delray Beach International on Monday, blasting seven aces to take the first set 6-2 before his opponent retired with a leg injury at 2-2 in the second.

It's the most aggressive I've been all year."
