'One of the coolest things about working with Brad was he came in, and he's like, "Listen, we're going to simplify things." It wasn't all this technical mumbo-jumbo. He made it very simple.' Andy Roddick, on working with coach Brad Gilbert

Brad Gilbert will replace the injured Michael Chang in the first round of the Davis Cup against Mexico next month, the U.S. Tennis Assn. said today. Chang, 17, ranked fifth in the world, is recovering in Placentia from a hip fracture suffered in practice last month. Gilbert, the sixth-ranked player, has played for the U.S. Davis Cup team three times, winning both his singles against Mexico in 1986.

Brad Gilbert made a bet and had to live with it. Reluctantly, Gilbert left the ground and returned to it, skydiving with Andy Roddick earlier this month after Roddick won the Masters Series event in Montreal. "I don't think he liked it too much, judging by him keeled over on the side of the road afterward," said Roddick, who is expected to play his first-round match against Tim Henman on Tuesday night. "But he definitely did it." There is no such bet -- yet -- for the U.S. Open.

Brad Gilbert played a guessing game and repeatedly came up with the right answer. Gilbert, of Piedmont, Calif., upset second-seeded Stefan Edberg of Sweden, 7-5, 7-6, Sunday to win the $315,000 U.S. Indoor Championships at Memphis, Tenn. The sixth-seeded Gilbert took home the first prize of $45,000. "I was really guessing forehand throughout the match," Gilbert said. "He started missing some first serves and I was getting a good crack at the ball.

You would expect the line -- or the queue, as they say around here -- of willing-and-able coaches to stretch into the distance when word went out that 20-year-old Andy Roddick was searching for a replacement after recently parting with Tarik Benhabiles. So, Roddick called the home of the guy at the top of the list. And promptly heard the dial tone. They always say rejection is only a phone call away.

Andy Roddick is going to try working with Andre Agassi's former coach. Roddick will get ready for Wimbledon under the guidance of Brad Gilbert, the former tour pro Agassi left early last year. A spokeswoman for Roddick said it's not a permanent move yet. Roddick split with coach Tarik Benhabiles after a second straight opening-round loss at the French Open. They spent four years together, during which Roddick won six titles and reached a career-high ATP ranking of No. 5.

U.S. Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe put out the polite word that personal coaches would not be allowed at all of the practices at Oklahoma City and Houston in the first two rounds of Davis Cup earlier this year. Pete Sampras, who has won more Grand Slam titles than any other male player, went along with the program, as did star-in-the-making Andy Roddick. John McEnroe, Patrick's older brother, had another approach during his short Davis Cup tenure. He didn't want to shake the comfort zone of the top players, and so Brad Gilbert, who was then coaching Andre Agassi, was a ubiquitous figure.

Andre Agassi has been injured before, and, though it has been almost eight years, he has gone through coaching changes. Usually, these twin developments would stand alone, evaluated on their own merit. This is no longer the case.

Andre Agassi's season of upheaval continued Wednesday with the announcement of his split with longtime Coach Brad Gilbert, raising questions about Agassi's future in the game. Though Agassi, 31, has not hit a ball in sanctioned tournament action in 2002, he already has made plenty of news. Earlier this month, he withdrew on the eve of the Australian Open with an injured right wrist and returned home.

I for one am not a bit surprised that Andre Agassi won the French Open this year, because judging by the television coverage, he was the only player on the court. Oh, I know that Andrei Medvedev was there because I saw him accept the runner-up trophy, but before that it was kind of dicey. It didn't matter what the score was--the camera was on Agassi. Andre wins the point--close-up on Andre. Andre loses the point--close-up on Andre. (To be fair, it was broken up frequently with close-ups on Brad Gilbert, Agassi's coach.

Brad Gilbert, a tennis player turned coach, intended the title of his book, "Winning Ugly," to apply to his own inelegant but effective style of play. Yet it seems to apply equally to Ivan Lendl. Gilbert describes his match in 1986 with Lendl, and Lendl's practice of stalling when behind: "He gradually edges up to the line to serve. I get ready, but he's not quite set to go into his motion yet. He has some business to take care of first. "He begins with his eyelash routine.

Wally Masur defeated Brad Gilbert in four sets today to give Australia a 1-0 lead over the defending champion United States in their first-round Davis Cup match at Melbourne. Masur won, 6-3, 6-7 (6-8), 6-4, 6-2, in a little more than three hours. The Australian returned serve superbly and dominated Gilbert in the final two sets. It was only Masur's third victory in nine meetings with Gilbert, but he is 2-1 against him on grass. "I won and that's what counts," Masur said.
