PETE SAMPRAS, the world No 1 and Wimbledon champion, is expected to be fit for the United States' Davis Cup semi-final against Sweden, which starts in Gothenburg tomorrow.

Tom Gullikson, the US captain, has denied reports that Sampras, who has missed part of the summer with an ankle injury and suffered a surprise fourth-round US Open defeat earlier this month, would not be ready.

'Pete is hitting the ball really well in practice and moving about the court well,' Gullikson said. 'He is doing just fine - he had a stomach upset earlier in the week, but that was minor.'
