The United States Tennis Association (USTA) confirmed on Wednesday that Fish would replace Jim Courier to become the team's 41st captain, Xinhua news agency reported.

The 37-year-old, who retired in 2015, won a combined 14 titles on the ATP Tour -- six in singles and eight in doubles during his career.
