"Well, that is a question the incoming president of the USLTA—Bob Kelleher—must decide. Certainly, as captain, I bear the responsibility for Barcelona and Porto Alegre. Anytime a team loses I think it is fair to ask whether or not the captain is qualified. It has been said that to have been a Davis Cup player is a necessity to being the captain. I disagree. I am not a coach but am fortunate to have one of the finest in the world, Pancho Gonzales, working with us. Otherwise, I feel that the duties of a captain are to understand his players, make arrangements for proper training, find out as soon as possible where you are going to play and make preparations accordingly. I have tried to do this and hope to be able to do it again."
