Hi

I am so fed up with all your complaints about the anthem and other minor details.

GB have won fantastic, let it be These guys work so hard to keep fit and play and all you go on about is whether Andy was singing the anthem or whether he was wearing the correct shirt. i cannot believe what you are saying.

Andy is great he works so hard and all the Davis Cup Team , lets us just support them and Andy for the rest of the season.

I bet you are not fit. I am I play tennis regularly and never go in a lift and walk each evening, and I am 67 yeras of age!!

Well said, I think enough has been said about anthems and kit etc. I was more interested in our boys ands how they played. What I thought was great was the friendship and sportsmanship between the two teams.

I agree totally. Let's cut out all extraneous nonsense and stick to positive comments about Team GB and Andy.

Nothing to do with tennis, I know, Aileen, but if the figures Mackenzie quotes are true and if Scotland did eventually gain total independence, I would hate to see your proud country struggle as a result.  I hope all Scots will be well informed before putting a cross in the yes box in a referendum ballot.  Good luck if you do.
I certainly don't want independence, although I do support the SNP's policies in general because they have done a lot for Scotland, which is more than can be said for the earlier Labour/LibDem coalition, and neither do the majority of Scots.

Independence would be an absolute disaster and only the seriously deluded amongst the electorate can believe otherwise.  My earnest wish is that Alex Salmond would get his beloved referendum over with and then he'll find out exactly where he stands on this issue.

I'm just back from my daily morning hour out in all weather across the fields with my Retriever dogs.  I am very fit.  I have a treadmill and inversion table and use of my friends PowerPlate, but then again I'm only 63.  A slip of a girl <vbg>

I was at the DC tie for all three days and I can say that the friendship between the whole team - players and support staff is evident for all to see.  They are very much a team and there is a great team spirit between them all.  James Ward and Ross Hutchins (the non-scots!!!) got a terrific warm welcome and the full support of the crowd.  James Ward at various points throughout his match especially when he was struglling used the crowd to gee him up and they responded accordingly almost pushing him over the finishing line.  The response to the Hungary players was brilliant and you could tell they really appreciated it.  Of course the reception for Andy was above anything else but then he is the 4th best player in the world and has gained international recognition and he was coming home - so that was always going to be the case.  Colin Fleming got an amazing response especially from the Sitrling Uni Students corner as Colin studied at Stirling.  Ollie Goulding also got a terrific response when he was introduced to the arena.  All in all I think it bodes very well for the future because the team are united in their aim and Leon Smith seems to be doing a great job.  I do feel now that they have moved up a group they will need Andy to be part of the team - obvioulsy for his ability to win but also for the vibe that he brings to the team. So really the whole issue of anthems etc. appeared to make no difference to the team members they were united in victory!!!!

"Murray ponders link-up with Federer's former coach"

Hi everyone,
I would not get too excited over the headline as it's more than a little misleading -- any input from Andy himself is suspiciously missing! But  for anyone who will still be interested or doe's not already know...

I don't think many of the British Team sand GSTQ on Friday - it is just the same as the Footy and Rugby etc. emotion gets the better and the players stand tight lipped.  Andy was clearly enjoying himself during the course of the weekend singing and dancing along to the Proclaimers, Loch Lomond etc.  Why should he not he is Scottish after all.   The passion and desire as a result of Andy being piped in to FOS is only something you get if you are Scottish - it was a proud moment for him.  We were sitting next to some English folks who were lapping up the Scottish vibe - they wanted to experience a Scottish welcome and they thought it was fantastic - I don't think many English people who were actually there were offended by the scottish factor  - quite the opposite they thought it was an amazing atmosphere.  Andy is Scottish and wants to celebrate that fact when he comes home - not really that big an issue - Tim Henman was proud of being English would we have wanted him to don a kilt and learn the words to FOS???? No !!!!  It sometimes feels that Andy can't do right for doing wrong.  He is the ultimate sportsman - aiming high and achieving greatness - let's celebrate that fact - consistently No. 4 in the world (likely to be No. 3 by year end) yes us Scots are very proud of him as are much of the UK.

Hurrah some sensible speaking at last I am English and have been to Braehead that is totally how I felt - great post!!

Hi everyone,

http://www.espn.co.uk/tennis/sport/story/112225.html  
It's already appeared on the News Articles thread, and my comment on there was that I wished the media would stop putting words into Andy's mouth.  How do they know he's "pondering" this or anything else for that matter.  Also Roger Rasheed's name is once again being revived.

I've no doubt that when the time comes, if it comes, the first we'll probably hear about it will be from Andy himself via his official website - and after this year's farce, ignore any of Andy's tweets on April 1st!  Sorry, but it that still makes me laugh - Ross Hutchins as his new coach ...
