I would say meredith mcgrath, zina garrison, lori mcneil.......
someone with a lower profile, who'll commit for 3-5 years.
someone who lets the team take care of it, rather than trying too hard to create something that isn't possible, and upsetting all kind of nice, committed individual players along the way (amy, gigi, lisa, jen, alex).
Actually some of those players are a bit controversial (gigi, jen and alex) - maybe billie sees them as an easy scapegoat to use when things ain't going right LOL
Mary Joe Fernandez
...not very possible but a great captain would be: Meredith McGrath!
I think it would be close between Zina Garrison-Jackson as second captain now and Martina Navratilova. These two women would be the Top 2 candidats for the USTA in my opinion. I personally would love to see Chris Evert as captain for team USA. :hearts:
As much as Martina I and Monica deserve it, I'm afraid that would reinforce the "send us your talented, your (will be) rich" credo that robs other countries of athletic talent. (The only athletes we really "export" are washed up baseball players who go to Japan to take advantage of the short fences and hit alot of home runs. In fact the Japanese League had to limit these "imports" to 2 per team).
