Week 37 - Davis Cup Finals - Manchester (Indoor Hard)


The only real question for me was Cam or Jack for singles ( I still worry about Jack ) but if he really does seem fit and well and shaping up as the more likely man than Cam, fair enough.

Does mean Dan playing the #1s match rather than the earlier #2s match.

 Well done Stan for laying the blame squarely at Piquet, Kosmos & ITF door over this whole shambolic format change. It was fine as it was and that has now been proven. No home fans, no show.. Home and away worked.


Safe to say that Julien Benneteau is not impressed either.

Not a tweet for the faint-hearted.

 This, with bells on. Though no doubt the folk that matter ( or at least make the decisions ) would be deaf to them  ;-(

I notice Billy Harris on the GB bench. Assume he is there as a hitting partner.

R1:  GB (Jack Draper WR 106) defeated AUS (Thanasi Kokkinakis WR 74) by 6-7(6) 6-3 7-6(4)  biggrin

A bit of a baptism of fire for Jack, but he came through it with flying colours.  Well done, lad.

Doubles is Neal and Dan all day long. That's one choice Leon should find easy, the singles however, think I'd be inclined to go with Dan and Jack


I can't see Evans playing both dubs & sins though against Oz.. He might go with Murray then Norrie in the singles but only if Draper is not ready. On Twitter there are pictures of Draper hitting with Edmund in the Manchester arena today, so looking ready to go.

Looks like the GB games are to be shown on BBC iplayer again but not the other fixtures in Manchester. Looks like they'll be on the Tennis Channel for a fee no doubt.


 You called it right emmsie69, looks like Evo will play both singles then dubs back to back. I suppose if any of the GB can play potentially six sets it is Evans.

That's a terrific win for Jack. I saw some of the 1st set but then the Tennis Channel decided to switch over to the Croatia vs USA match.

Ruddy marvelous gutsy performance from Draper that. It was a tight game but in the end he held his nerve and pulled some great shots out of the bag.
