Fish out of Newport to play Davis Cup
Fish was selected for the team on Monday, a day after Roddick lost an epic Wimbledon final to Roger Federer. Roddick withdrew citing a right hip flexor injury.
The Hall of Fame tourney has never had its top-seeded player win the title in its 33-year history.
Fish will join the U.S. team for this week's quarterfinal tie in Porec, Croatia.
