I was surprised by today's result. I thought that Dan would blow it big time and Ward might get a result.
I thought the same, but tennis is a strange sport. DCs are a bit like Slams - full of surprises, some pleasant, some not so.
1-1 is a good result for GB. If the Colin / Ross can win tomorrow then Dan may get the win on Sunday. Ward won't make it.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Colin/Ross, because if they lose, then, as Boogers would say "tie over!". Even if they win it's going to put a lot of pressure on Dan. I was hugely impressed with him today, but, even although today's win will have boosted his confidence, could he cope with having the outcome of the tie resting on his shoulders? Ward may be our No.2 but (a) his game is suspect and (b) he can't cope with pressure. Even his coach, when interviewed, sounded far from happy about him. His chances of beating Lacko are extremely slim.
Just back from Braehead. Dan was brilliant. A real shame James couldn't pull off the win.
Good to hear from somebody who was there. Yes, Dan surprised even himself, I think. He certainly seemed a bit shell-shocked during his interview! Ward's loss didn't surprise me for the reasons stated above, and when the 4th set went to a TB, defeat was inevitable.
The crowd support seemed pretty good, so what was the atmosphere really like? Do you reckon Andy's absence made a noticeable difference?
