The beeb have shown it in previous years, so I wonder what's changed. Think  Have Eurosport got the rights now?

There was no mention of the NZ Davis Cup team on the news here - they are in Group 1 I believe - in fact, over that particular weekend, I think the sports coverage compiled of rugby (union - Crusaders vs Reds in some final or other), netball (vs England in the semis and Australia in the final) and rowing - world championships in Lucerne.  They don't often cover many sports beyond these and you all know what my tennis coverage is like fainting
Seems like you've got a bad deal there Bev. I'm all for a variety of sports to be shown, but there's too much footy, its just brain washing everyone. The trouble is with TV channels here in Norway is that one has to buy several packages in order to get the programmes you like. It's unfair the way they are set it up, it's all about huge profits, not providing a product that customers need. Shrug

Found a small article from last year!

Eurosport replaces BBC to broadcast Davis Cup

http://www.sportspromedia.com/news/eurosport_replaces_bbc_to_broadcast_davis_cup/
That's interesting.  I didn't know that. 

Thanks Bev! They'll probably end up with everything! Wimbledon next?
The Beeb threatened a couple of years ago to pull the plug on tennis, including Wimbledon, saying it was a cost-cutting move, but bowed to the howls of protest from British tennis fans.  However, nothing can ever be completely ruled out ... Rolling Eyes

Don't think this has been mentioned - but it should be!

The words that introduced Andy onto the court for his matches - "Hey.. Don't ever let somebody tell you, you can't do something...." - were from 'The Pursuit of Happyness'

Here's the clip of the scene from the film:

Great quote; and great to see Andy so fired up over the weekend.

It's possible someone has posted this already but I've not been able to visit MW for a few days so am rather behind.  Anyway in case not, this was on the back page of Tuesday's Guardian - it's a great piece about Andy and what happened on Sunday:

Absolutely dismal summer in the UK so far and no signs of improvement.  About 60F in Edinburgh yesterday - and that was in the middle of the day!

I can't stand the heat! Never could! I love to see the sun, but can't bear to be out in it! My favourite times of day to sit in the garden in Summer, is 5am and then from 7pm onwards! The cool of the evening when all the flowers release their scent and I can look at the night sky, is my idea of heaven!
