Its in and against the USA!!

Great Britain will travel to the United States for the first round of the Davis Cup World Group in 2014.

It is the first time Great Britain have featured in the 16-team World Group since 2008, when back-to-back defeats by Argentina and Austria sparked a slump to the Euro-Africa Zone Group II that reached its nadir when the founding nation found itself in a relegation play-off against Turkey in 2010.

Since Leon Smith's arrival men have lost just one of their eight ties, reaching the World Group courtesy of their 4-1 win over Croatia, a match that marked world No. 3 Andy Murray's return to the side after a two-year absence.

More to follow...

Realise now that with playing in the USO the chances will shrink that Andy will play in Rotterdam (10-16 february)...Frown((((((( Think he'll combine this with a training period, like he did last year.....

That was entertaining - thanks dani!

I see there's also an article by Ben Rothenburg: The British Are Coming … for Davis Cup.

There's a lot I don't know about DC - like that it started as a competition between USA and GB in 1900, and "the last time the British defeated the Americans in Davis Cup was in 1935, when they won on Centre Court at Wimbledon with a team led by Fred Perry".

But "Perry and other British tennis trivia of his era have recently been made less relevant by Andy Murray...."

He also picks up on the Piers Newbury tweet and Andy's response!

I'm a little late with this but it is a good read.  Don't be put off by the title - there is quite a bit about Andy.

http://www.sbnation.com/longform/2013/9/17/4736820/rafael-nadal-us-open-tennis-2013-comeback

Murray had never before had the opportunity to defend a Grand Slam title. Were he to win the Open again, he had a shot, for the first time, at the No. 1 ranking. But he looked dull and flat in the early rounds and clearly hampered by a hangover from his Wimbledon victory, which had called on every bit of his mind and body and spirit. ESPN had chosen him as the subject of one their overwrought TV essays all of which have the same evident subtext  - who says we aren't sensitive? - is a question no one was asking. The Murray piece began with a tremulous "What happens to the dreamer when the dream comes true?"  It's hardly a mystery. What happens is this: he gets tired.

Apparently memory is in short supply in Murray's homeland, where, mere weeks ago, he was a hero and speculation abounded as to when he would be knighted.

Thanks Iona.
I felt it was bit stereotyped; and the comment "...having spent the first part of his tennis life proving he has what it takes, he's fated to spend the rest of it trying to top his own achievements." jarred a little.
Just seems a bit joyless and negative to me.

That's interesting- I'm sure that even if I wasn't British I'd still like Murray the best, because of his attitude and his complete and total lack of bullsh*t!
