 Definitely, FAA is a player who seems to lack confidence in tight moments, evidenced by his performances in losing finals and generally in slams, and Olympics would follow that trend - Andy would have won this one

The Highlights on BBC include Andy Murray withdrawing, Ash Barty losing but no mention of Liam winning! So annoying.

Same issue with the doubles reporting,  they only talked about Andy and Joe, no mention of Jamie and Neil.

Nothing on Sky Sports News this morning either - who haven't mentioned Cam either.

Huge effort from Liam and delighted for him.

Well done to Liam - a good watch. Good physicality (as would expect from Liam) and mental strength. Good luck v Hurkacz - looking forward to that one smile

L64:  (ITF) Liam Broady WR 142 defeated Francisco Cerúndolo (ARG) WR 116 by 7-5 6-7(4) 6-2 in three hours & three minutes  biggrin

L64:  Andy Murray WR 104 vs (9) Félix Auger-Aliassime (CAN) WR 15

Andy, as has already been reported, withdrew from the singles with a slight thigh strain & was replaced by the Aussie alternate, Max Purcell, who proceeded to beat FAA by 6-4 7-6(2)!  hmm

*****

L32:  (ITF) Liam Broady WR 142 vs (7) Hubert Hurkacz (POL) WR 12 (CH = 11 two weeks ago)

Jamie and Neal 3rd on court 7 tomorrow. Andy and joe seem to have the day off, Andy will be happy I suspect.

I don't really understand why the Beeb etc are so slow in reporting Brits if they aren't already well known. Would it just have killed them to mention Loan and Cam who have both had significant wins today. Grrrr.
