According to Bill Kellogg - a committee member on the USA DAVIS CUP- the International Tennis Federation came up with another term to distinguish between a "match between …nations" and the "individual match between the players". The term is a tie. For example USA vs France is a tie. The term "rubber" is taken from other sports like cricket. Also used in Bridge to stand for 2 out of 3 games. Rubber in tennis is the match between players. The dictionary definition says something like this: "a rubber is a deciding contest of 2 opponents who have previously won their same number of contests from each other."

The Davis Cup is an international tennis event played between male players of those countries entering. Therefore, each country will have its own captain. In the US, for the… past several years (10 I think) it has been Patrick McEnroe, but this year the U.S. changed coaches. Jim Courrier is the new coach for the U.S Davis Cup team. The new Australian team captain, as of 2010, is now Patrick Rafter, replacing the former captain, John Fitzgerald - now retired. The current captain of the Indian Davis Cup team is Mahesh Bhupathi.
In Vietnam War
B-52s won the battle for Khe Sanh in 1968. That was the only weapon the NVA feared and could not fight during the whole war. This only applied to the war in South Vietnam howe…ver. In the air war over North Vietnam, even though the B-52 was still feared, it could be dealt with via the North Viet Ground Defense Network using SAM missiles, and the NVAF, which flew high altitude MiG21 interceptors.
