Thanks Eileen! I thought all my efforts were in vain when nobody answered me lol, heres hoping then? Would be so handy for me as braehead is only 15 mins away. Have plans to go to world tour finals in london also (assuming andy will qualify) but fingers crossed for braehead first
Well at least I knew about the thread! That's the trouble though because topics disappear off the discussion list in the Forum box very quickly because it's so short - something I've complained to Mark about in the past but got ignored - so new topics can easily go unnoticed.
For details as to venue, players, etc, this is the website to keep an eye on - http://www.lta.org.uk/daviscup
I want Andy to play DC only when it could really make a difference as I don't want it to get in the way of his personal goals. That might sound selfish but we're still so far from winning DC that for Andy to win more GSs and/or get to #1 ranking would do more for British tennis.
I agree with you, Ruthie. Russia will certainly be a big challenge for our lads but that's what they need to pep them up a bit. They're at the level they deserve to be at. No way are they ready for the World Group. Admittedly the tie does fall fairly conveniently between Miami and Monte Carlo, and I know how much Andy enjoys playing DC, but even if he does want to play Lendl might have other ideas. Also Andy himself has said he needs to be careful about his scheduling now, so expending energy unnecessarily on what is really an unimportant DC tie may well not be on the agenda.
