On the surface, whether grass, clay, composition or paper, the idea of the United States losing a Davis Cup match is preposterous.In the men's world tennis rankings, five United States players are among the top 9: Jim Courier is No. 1, Pete Sampras No. 2, Andre Agassi No. 7, Ivan Lendl (who as a U.S. citizen is now eligible) No. 8, and Michael Chang No. 9. No other nation has even two players among the top nine.But last weekend, the United States, the defending cup-holder, lost in the first round to Australia, 4-1, a nation with no singles players in the top 10. Then again, none of the top five Americans were there.
