He just lost 7-6 4-6 7-6.

He served for the match at 5-4 in the 3rd but just before the service game his opponent took a medical time out to get his legs rubbed and Colin had to wait around for 5 minutes in the "freezing cold". Rolling Eyes

I'd not been really aware of Colin until the Davis Cup. I watched the doubles and was mighty impressed with him. He's a born doubles player. I hadn't realised he took three years out to go to uni. Can't have helped his career.

I'm feeling a bit more hopeful now, though I haven't given up on Andy, but, I'll look out for Colin in future!

Hate to admit this, but I really only took an interest in tennis when Andy came on the scene, but, now that I have, I find it really exciting and like several players though Andy is my 'main man'! Now, I'll watch Colin with interest too! Thanks for the info!
