Sam and John both hit a lot of aces, and of course the Bryan brothers are or were really good, but I'll be rooting for Andy and his team.  And as we all know anything can happen in a match.

Good Luck GB

Looks like it's probably going to be down to Murray/Fleming in the doubles, although if James Ward is on form there's chance he might just beat Sam Querrey.

Tough ask in front of a USA home crowd.  Still - you never know!

It may be a USA Home crowd, but it's superbowl weekend and that IS the sport out there.

I wonder if any ex-pat Brits will turn up?  The students at Stirling Uni normally add their very vocal support but I seriously doubt that they'd travel to San Diego!

Don't know how many ex-pats, but some have gone out from the UK. I've read tweets from a number of people making the journey.

@GBtennis Apparently 80 of us here, according to some guy from the LTA. You'll know I will make as much noise as my lungs will allow Smile
also... Apparently there was someone in Umag who that was their 63rd tie in a row!

I've got 91st birthday to go to on Sunday, and a Super Bowl party (probably my 4th or 5th year of SB - still don't understand any of it!)

^ Great that people are willing and able to be there to support. 

A 91st?  Is that like a 21st with Zimmer Frames?  Very Happy  I wouldn't have a clue re SB either - but any excuse for a party!

A friend has just phoned me to say that he's heard on 5live that the clay on this court, which has been specially set up for the tie in the corner of a baseball pitch, isn't the same as the stuff at RG but is very slippery.  If so, Andy will love that, not!  Also Isner has an ankle injury, so can't imagine him being too happy either.

Meanwhile whether Ward or Edmund will play will be decided after both have played Andy today.

ooh beat me to the tweet! Not liking the sound of that - though neither will John Isner.

The support at Umag was clearly much appreciated by the players - sure it will be the same in San Diego.

The 89th birthday party of Mr E's mum was a fabulous day - a party shared with an Iranian great great nephew in law (or something like that).  Quite a lot of hip wiggling, to Elvis etc and some more eastern stuff. Heading back from way out West London later, checked phone and found Davis Cup still going, with  Dan Evans about to win (in 5 sets v Klizan - had to check that bit). 91st will be a bit more sedate I think, but hope news from Team GB is as good!

Here's the team - several comments about Dom Inglot not getting his name on the table or his legs under it!



and the interview

Yup - best to the team and hope to catch some of it, although not sure re timings etc.   

Jeezo - Dom Inglot would have to fold those legs under the table!

Enjoy the parties and your weekend, Elena.  Smile
