Great Britain power through to Davis Cup quarters

Quote

Thanks for the very good report Prod, and for the videos.  The noise during the matches was amazing - in fact I had to turn down the sound on my TV - but it seems the Bryan twins weren't too happy about it, going as far as to call the crowd 'hostile', which I thought was ridiculous because the crowd applauded good play from the Americans, which is more than can be said about how some countries treat their opponents.

Totally agree with you Aileen. The crowd were very fair and did not behave as some countries or as the stupid Fed fans do, they will cheer and clap whenever his opponent makes an error, as we saw in his Final in Dubai.

Queens would be great if it's in England - so easy to access.

Is Queens big enough tho? A London venue would attract potentially huge crowds.

I think I read that they might be able to build extra stands though not sure where - perhaps they could cover up the club house lol!  It's sounding more and more as if that's what they're going for if Queens will agree

Am I right in thinking that the stands at Queens are not permanent stands and go up for the tournament each year? In which case it would be very easy to install more seating by adding layers above the stands which already get installed. There could, however, be capacity restrictions because of available facilities and the like.

I was mostly thinking about numbers of available loos when I wrote facilities! The place is designed for its Hooray Henry members, but at least it is near enough to local facilities such as places to get food and decent transport links.

yes I think that's the case with the stands atl so you're right it should be possible to create more space.  However that reminds me that I thought I'd read somewhere that they'd not be keen to keep the stands up once the Queens tournament is finished.  But I guess if the LTA really want it (ie Andy and Leon do) they can put pressure on them or make it worth their while.

I've heard that discussions have been ongoing with Queens - they seem to be coming round to the idea - hopefully it'll come off as we definatly need grass so close to Wimbledon (even the Aussies are installing grass court for their tie)

As now agreed at Queen's priority tickets on sale Wednesday morning.

An important issue for me is when the tennis will start,  ie what time!  Not considered important in the event publicity.

Help please.
