So long as he is fit and much as I like Neal, and rate him, Id take Andy in the last 8 as my partner any day. Dont folks think he and Joe are proving a strong pair? They look very good to me.

Great result for Liam. Would it be sacrilege to say wish Joe and Neal had played the doubles together?


 No, but I am happy with Joe & Andy playing together. 

Andy comes with possible injury issues, and again some ongoing doubts here, but if you are going for gold ( or at least a medal ), it makes sense to pick the player with the biggest upside. Neal's a great player but with Andy's big time experience and possible best level ( quite apart from how different pairs are likely to gel ), like Jon, I felt it was a very understandable choice by Joe. Joe & Andy simply looked the better chance to me and, as long as Andy's injury issue continues as unrestricting as he says it is, it still looks very good.

Badosa retires during her singles match and is wheeled off court. Possibly a w/o in the mixed.

They had a point for 5-3* too

And would have had a great shot in the semis with the Kiwis upsetting Columbia. Such a shame.

Badosa out if mixed, second French pair are in. Always feels wrong that in a 16 field countries can have two teams.

 agreed, but their top pair lost today, and easily, so they only have 1 pair left in now!

Survives break back point and Liam takes the 2nd set 6-4. Into a decider. Thats really impressive from Liam who was 6-7, 0-2 down and I thought.....heading home!
