bbh I don't think BBC are covering it - probably due to the cuts they've been making.  It's on Eurosport but not sure how many digital packages include that.  For those who do have it, they're repeating some of the last DC just before the match.
Here's a piece about the tie from the Independent.  Not surprisingly Andy is tired so is not expecting to kiss another triple bagel but, more positively, he says he is looking forwards not backwards.

I fancy the player called Kiss! Very Happy

Anway, what about free livestreams?  The only one I've come across is this one, but have no idea what it'll be like and any commentary almost certainly won't be in English -

packed my bag (flags, juice, chocolate raisins- no percy pigs!) and due to head off after grabbing a sarnie. Oliver Golding has been invited to join the team, I hope he brings his trophy along so we can all cheer that.

Thanks Allan - completely forgot about the LTA one! doh

Thanks Ruthie.  Somehow I can't see Andy rushing off to play in Bangkok, which starts on the 26th.  Fortunately it's a 250.


Just noticed this, although the article goes back to March ...

Why she is our Queen too, the English don't actually have exclusive rights to the national anthem!

What I meant was that I'm just not used to hearing it as the home anthem in a Scottish sporting event. I'm not saying it shouldn't be played!

Give me GSTQ any day before "Flower of Scotland", which, incidentally, was never intended to be our national anthem.  It's a beautiful song in its own right - a lament really - completedly murdered when sung by sporting crowds.  If you've ever listened to Ron Brown of The Corries, who composed it, singing it then you'll know what I mean.

Also I'm old enough to remember when the British national anthem was the only one sung at sporting events in Scotland, and anyway this is a British event, not a Scottish one.
