I want to know a bit about the DVD if anyone has watched it. I've got all the matches already, so if this new DVD is of the final only, I really don't need it. However, if it has highlights of all Andy's matches with a bit of background on each one or something, I might get it.

^ Wow!  Love that!  Shame we have to wait another five weeks though.


I honestly think it's time now for Andy to back away from DC and prioritise his own career, at the very least until we have another consistent singles player. Don't get me wrong, Dan Evans did well, very well, in the one tie, but we need someone to back Andy up, and there is no one just now. Maybe Leon could get someone such as Ollie Golding to play, rather than just being there. He might not win, but surely the experience would be good for him.
Which is one of the main reasons why Andy wanted to pull out of playing DC.  He doesn't want just one player backing him up but would much prefer that Team GB learned to stand on their own feet rather than have him prop them up all the time.   They'll have to do it anyway once he retires.

Poor Andy, having to play the day after Boxing Day!  Only an exhibition, and Tipsy (fingers crossed) shouldn't be too tough an opponent, but it will be a bit of a rude awakening after a nice Christmas at home!  At least it's a late afternoon, but 1pm UK time.

Regarding Davis Cup.  I don't think Andy should distance himself from it, rather he should pick his participation wisely.  The problem at the moment is the gap between his ability and that of the men would could viably fill the second and third places.   When Britain plays a team like Luxembourg, you get the horrible mis-match with some poor soul getting destroyed by Andy, and it happening across three pointless sets.  On the other hand, as soon as Britain is playing against a country with players that are more matched to Andy's abilities, it's the 2nd placed Brit that risks a humiliating pasting.  Hopefully not quite a triple bagel, but a one-sided and rather pointless and unsatisfying affair all the same.

There are definite benefits to letting the younger, lower ranked players get a bit of higher level match experience, but I think it is also good for them, and nice for Andy, if he can join them at least some of the time.  For the time being, they probably are better off staying in the Europe/Africa Group I group, and not try too hard (with Andy) for promotion until the whole team is stronger and able to sustain it.   Likewise, if Andy can come in and help them seal a victory that will protect them from relegation, it's worth while.  That all assumes that he is fit and it doesn't impact too adversely on his schedule.

I don't think Andy should base his decision on whether or not to play on whether or not he's universally loved by all in the UK.  He's not petty minded like that, and more to the point, why should all the decent fans suffer because of a few idiots?  I don't think there is any doubt that Andy enjoys the actual experience of playing for his country, it's just it's not always very practical and with a busy schedule, something has to give.

Meantime, back at the Addidas Micoach app, it is Andy's voice....my husband walked a mile and the voice told him how many calories he'd burned, how long it took him and at the end Andy says "Top Job".
I may walk for five minutes tomorrow and see what he says.
I'm sure there are better exercise apps but it's free and it is HIS voice.

Yes, thanks Linda for the wonderful montage.  I'm glad you managed to get in the pic of Lendl looking happy  - that rarely seen expression spoke volumes.

Maybe he's practising for his next GS win ... Smile
