Wow, looks like Dan is dominating this, marvellous performance so far!


That was before he dropped the second set by 2-6!  hmm

Turning it round in the final set though! Go on Dan. If he wins this, what a result for GB, Aussies are probably group favourites?

BBC saying Dan has a hamstring problem and adm is fighting back. Maybe Dan will give way to Andy in doubles ? Whatever the score line here . Getting edgy now !

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


Dan eventually makes it GB 2 AUS 0:

R2:  GB (Daniel Evans WR 27) defeated AUS (Alex de Miņaur WR 12) by 6-1 2-6 6-4  biggrin

I wonder how much the home advantage is having an effect. Seems kind of unfair.

Great wins, well done to the guys.

Pity it's in this crap imitation of the Davis Cup but still good going in this not the Davis Cup thingie .

 I would have said GB was, with the home advantage Helen refers to, but still tough matches today that had to be won.

Now, I loved the home and way element of the original format and the gladiatorial element of just the two teams battling over 5 matches. But it's all rather different in this group stuff with one team at home and little travelling support for the away teams.

I guess we need one group team at home for anyone much to turn up to any of the matches.

Wonderful stuff from Jack & Dan.
Edge of seat stuff
Question Dan going straight into doubles , but I suppose you can say he's well warmed up !

FWIW Neither nor - either or was drummed into me as a kid. So I don't think its incorrect just archaic.

Re the thread title, surely the Davis Cup Finals are in Malaga in November. Not sure what this stage is officially called - I'll resist putting forward a suggestion.
