Really angry with Andrew Castle - said just as match was starting that he couldn't understand why Andy didn't want to play as, and I quote, "The Davis Cup is the best coach in the world!"  ranting

Thanks and GB has broken to lead 4-2 and Fleming serving next

The crowd is chanting ("Come on GB Let's go")  "Let's go Flembo let's go " clap clap

Two big returns from Slovakia to make it 0-30 !

Big 1st serve down the T for 15-30

Deft and calm volleys from the net, and Slovakia nets for 30-30

Big lob from Slovakia forcing high volley from the baseline into the net for BP !

Good first serve wide then a high volley downthe middle and Slovakia nervously nets. A chance missed. Deuce

Missed volley at the net for BP#2

Ace - Deuce
Big first serve forcing a return wide for Adv
Another big first serve and the return just wide - oof.  
GB leading 5-2 a mini crisis averted

In a courtside interview by Castle, someone said before the match Leon Smith told GB doubles team "Have a good match" and they know what they are going to do.

Amazing rally of the match for GB to go to Deuce (from 40-0 down)

Big serve and smash

2-5 Adv Slovakia

Another big serve to make it 3-5
Ross now serving for set

Nervous static position at the net leading to netted ball 0-15

Slov had a chance to lob the ball long but it was short for an easy put away - oof  15-15

Barrage of attack by the Slov and Fleming finally volleyed long 15-30

Ross ran across to the left to intercept but the ball was too low and the volley was netted 2 BPs !

Fortunately Slov FH into the net 30-40

Good 1st serve and acute volley into the right open space for Deuce

Solid volley at the net and Slov hit into the net for Set Pt !

Slov was attacking from the baseline and attempted a drive volley from a relatively weaker BH volley which fortunately just netted.
GB leads 1 set to 0 (6-3)

Amazing point blank reaction from Ross(?) at the net to give BPs to GB.

One BP saved 30-40

Good 2nd serve body serve Deuce

FH error long for Adv Slov

Big serve - FH return into the net 1-0 Slov - GB serving next

I agree. The problem is Castle is not in Andy body to feel the pain and niggles so it is always easy to criticise.

1-1 All

Slovakia two big first serves for 30-0
Another two serves to make it 2-1 Slov - GB to serve next

Louis Cayer (Doubles Coach) said : to give the following message to the performers : energy, attitude, performance.
GB team is moving more and more energy,  need to stay low.

Big smashes at the net to go 15-0

Acute DTL curling the ball just in for 15-15
Big serve for 30-15
a few more good serves for 2-2
Slov was moaning about crowd cheering during play (crowd thought Slov had lost the point but the 2nd player managed to pick up the ball)
