Are Murray and Fleming Team Scotland or Team GB? Why are they wearing Addidas regular shirts with no mention of Great Britain, unlike Hutchins and Ward with Great Britain on their backs, as with Hungary shown on the shirts of all the opposition. It didn't go unnoticed that Andy managed to sing the Scottish anthem today and yet on Friday stayed silent for God Save the Queen. I appreciate the Scottish venue, but perhaps a little too much I'll Take The High Road. Maybe the next tie will come to London and we can do The Lambeth Walk and sing Jerusalem every day. Refreshing to see Majorcan Nadal today wearing total Spanish kit, as were the rest of the team - all matching. Team GB were an absolute mish mash of clothing. At least their tracksuits were matching and gave a clue that it was in fact a "British" team. Can't imagine our athletes looking so unidentifiable. If some folk, in whatever sport or national representation, interpret GB to mean England, then I suggest they decline to participate on principal and demand their own national team, otherwise represent GB with pride and without any hang-ups. I'd like to ask the LTA just who calls the shots?
I'm 100% Scottish and as patriotic as the rest of us, but I entirely agree with you and think it's disgraceful and disrespectful to the English players to have the Scottish aspect rammed down their throats. This a GB team effort not a Scottish one. I'm absolutely sure the next DC tie will take place in England and in fact I have to say that I wasn't happy when Braehead was chosen for this tie. Yes I'm very proud of the fact that Andy is a Scot, but this is taking things a bit too far.
I don't blame Andy for not singing GSTQ..i support the GB team but do you really expect Andy to sing that horrible excuse for an anthem? Here's some of the lyrics in case you don't know them..Lord grant that Marshal Wade
May by thy mighty aid
May he sedition hush
And like a torrent rush
Rebellious Scots to crush
God save the Queen
Oh for goodness sake - that particular verse got thrown out the window 150 years ago!
