I dunno.. i predict definitly not more than 4 players, 3 if we're lucky! Yes.. it's not exactly encouraging, but it's Britian we're talking about here.  Think


Very true, and realistic...... of coarse we'd love to have loads of players in top 100..... but realistically, i don't think we'll ever have loads ......

What about Tim or Greg?

Surely they'll have retired by the end of 2007?


 upfunny Will be pretty ridiculous if they don't.  dontknow

Well look how quickly Tim dropped down, even when he was playing...

And even if they are still in the top 100, it doesnt really count if they've stopped playing, does it?

Before its mostly ignored and forgotten i wanted to give credit to Jamies albeit modest achievements in the AO. He obviously fought his guts out today too, so good luck to him, i hope he breaks the top 100.

Agree absolutely.
Well done Jamie. clap clap clap

And took a set off Karlovic, didn't he? Made it look easy(ish), even. yay

Given that he started in the qualies, I'd say he had a better AO than Andy ...

Yep, I'll be very surprised if JL picks Boggo for the singles against Argentina.

Jamie played well. I'd be surprised if he doesn't get in the DC team.

I'm almost sure that Karlovic won because he has more experience at this, the higher, level.

He plays Borja Malo and is 3rd on Court 1 with play starting at 1pm (GMT)

Come on Jamie. I think he could be quite good as our number two. A slightly later bloomer but he works so hard he deserves it.

Aw, poor Jamie. I still have faith in him. Having seen him play he is pretty decent. He has a really good serve, better than Andy at times! But the rest needs to catch up.
