"Davis Kup was on the top of the list for my highlights of 2012! To be in front of an unbelievable crowd and to be treated by the staff and volunteers so nicely was a wonderful feeling. I was fortunate enough to reach the finals last year with my partner Frideric Prandecki and we are hoping to give another great showing this year. Even more importantly, proceeds for this tournament are going to the G Alex Foundation, a wonderful organization making for a better world. I'm looking forward to another great year and many more to come."
