Slava Dosedel feels like a natural man. He refuses to eat meat, becoming a vegetarian eight years ago. "To me, meat is like dead animal," he said. "I cannot eat meat. I like animals a lot." So when movie producer Pavel Linhart watched Dosedel in a television interview, he didn't see a jet-setting professional tennis player who has earned more than $2 million in his career.

Thanks to a team of tennis players from the Czech Republic few have heard of, the next U.S. Davis Cup match will be played at the Great Western Forum rather than UCLA. John McEnroe, new Davis Cup captain, pretty much made the site announcement from Zimbabwe, shortly after his team had survived a 3-2 scare last Sunday, when he said, "I'd like to play at the Forum.

After a fast and furious opening day--in which the shocking (Pete Sampras losing) and the expected (Andre Agassi winning) occurred within a few hours Friday--the score read: Czech Republic 1, United States 1 and International Incident 1.

The two best doubles players in the world happen to be Americans. And, yes, they play together regularly. For U.S. Davis Cup captain John McEnroe, it all seemed so logical. That's why he went against the recent American trend and Tuesday selected the doubles team of Jared Palmer and Alex O'Brien to play against the Czech Republic, April 7-9, at the Great Western Forum in the Davis Cup quarterfinals. The United States has put forth patchwork doubles teams of late, and success has been fleeting.
