"I feel we have a very strong team, but there will be many world class players in the tournament,"said Cash who was a member of the silver medal-winning U.S. team in 2013.

The past two years have been golden for Cash who has won the USTA grand slam in doubles in 2012 and 2013 and claimed his first national singles title this past fall.

"Winning a world gold medal in doubles is a great accomplishment, but winning my first national title in singles is pretty special as well."
