Roddick clinches U.S. win over ChileSANTIAGO, Chile - Andy Roddick sent the United States through to the Davis Cup quarter-finals on Sunday by dispatching Paul Capdeville 3-6, 7-6, 6-3, 6-3, to give the U.S. an insurmountable 3-1 lead over Chile.
Roddick improved his record to 12-0 when given the opportunity to close a Davis Cup tie, and Jim Courier earned a victory in his debut as U.S. captain.
“Let’s not mistake me being 12-0 with me not getting nervous,” said Roddick on the United States Tennis Association Web site. “When I hear stats like that it’s gratifying for me.”
Roddick was again a workhorse for the U.S., winning both his singles matches and improving his Davis Cup record to 33-11 but a modest 10-9 on foreign soil.
The United States will next host Spain, which beat Belgium on Saturday.
