Thanks for that. I'd just got confused.
I hate to say it, but I almost wish he would pull out of that tie, but I imagine he might be even more keen to play now, to help lift the team.
Yes I also think he'll be keen to play - to help out Leon especially, as he's been very supportive of him. At least if Andy won the US Open again, he wouldn't be so emotionally exhausted this time, but it'd still be tough coming out to play the next week. It wouldn't be so bad if it was on a hardcourt, but the change to clay always takes time for Andy anyway.
Accumulated points for all Davis Cup play over the preceding 52-week period will count as one result and form part of the ATP World Tour 500 category, the best of which count towards a player’s ranking.
If this is the case, he might not even have to play Tokyo?
Do they get points for the playoff ties? I thought it was just the World Group ties that awarded points, which I've always thought is a bit unfair.
