On Thursday night in Miami, Fish didn't feel well and saw a doctor. His parents live a few hours away in Florida, and he went to see the family doctor on Friday. After spending the weekend at his parents' home, Fish was going to fly to his place in California on Monday, Tobias said.
The agent said Fish will consider making changes to his schedule now, but he could still play next week at Houston. And Fish intends to compete on the European clay-court circuit at Rome and Madrid before the next Grand Slam tournament, the French Open, which begins May 27. Tobias said that "absolutely, 100 percent" Fish will play at Roland Garros.
"We're just going to scale him back a little bit and make sure that he arrives at a tournament well-rested and ready to compete," Tobias said. "His commitment to Davis Cup is like none other. It's absolutely killing him to miss it this time."
Ryan Harrison replaced Fish on the U.S. roster against France, which will be missing 14th-ranked Gael Monfils because of an abdominal injury.
