Moya set to be named Spain's Davis Cup captain

AP - Sports

MADRID (AP) -- Former top-ranked player Carlos Moya is set to replace Alex Corretja as captain of Spain's Davis Cup team.

Moya's appointment is expected to be announced formally on Thursday. He will take over in 2014 from Corretja, whose contract expires at the end of this year.

Moya tweets Wednesday: ''A very interesting day. Personally and professionally speaking.''

He also announced that his wife is pregnant with their third child.

Moya beat Corretja in the 1998 French Open final. He clinched the decisive point for five-time champion Spain in the 2004 Davis Cup final.

Under Corretja, Spain reached the 2012 Davis Cup final without Rafael Nadal, who returned last month to help win a playoff against Ukraine to stay in the World Group.

Spain's next Davis Cup match will be at Germany. Moya and Nadal are both natives of Mallorca.
