Courage doesn't always roar - but wins Wimbledon

I can't say I've had much experience of Wilander - if you get my drift - so I can't comment.  Castle needs to get his hair sorted and stop calling Andy 'Andrew'.  I'm not sure if he thinks that makes him special, but it just makes him come across as a prat, tbh.

No, neither have I, thank God Smile. He just always looks like that to me. Castle thinks he's special full stop. He is a prat, even my brother, not one to get excited about tennis really, wanted to know who the hell Castle thinks he is the other day when he was apparently talking on the news about the AO and pretending to be an expert.

I'm not even sure why Castle is where he is.  Who is he, anyway?

Agreed, and I'm not going to lose sleep if it's the same old same old.

Not too bad if first match is from 6:30pm - unless either match lasts about 6 hours (ouch) should be ok to get both done in fairly civilised time.

Are we going to have problem that we always have with the BBC when a match overruns the time they expect it to go to and just cut it off for some other programme.

I'm watching on the BBC too. If I have to sit through one more match with Chris 'I'm up myself' Bradnam, I may just have to kill someone.

I'm favouring the beeb too. Also prefer being able to see what goes on at changeovers - get fed up with a breaks which cause us to miss the first point or the comms telling us about a iscussion with the umpire which we misse so we can see fed an his razors. Planning a nice wee night in front of the tennis with a wee glass and some snacks. Good way to strt the weekend.

I think playing the DC will be a good thing for Andy, having witnessed first hand how pleased and proud he has been to represent his country I think this will aid his progress both physically and mentally.  It's also a given that without him Team GB have no chance so hope he leads them to victory as that will give him a huge boost.  Not sure whether to do BBC or E/sport both as bad as one another Andrew Castle is like a human slug leaving a trail of yuck and Europsort well we all know what they are might just mute and enjoy !!!

I like how the BBC do their coverage, no ad breaks for a start which really gets my goat!

as it's on bbc3 they might just stick with the tennis however long it goes on.
In two minds whether it will be good for Andy. I don't think it will help his rehab one bit. and could put it backwards having to change surfaces and on to the one he finds most difficult.  Of course that's why they chose it.  And having to play the other side of the world so soon after AO when I'm sure his body needs a rest isn't good.  I think he's being sensible staying in Oz till Sunday to get that rest before flying straight there and not dropping in on home, as he thought he might do.
But as against that he clearly loves being part of the DC team and leading them.  I love the ad they've been showing on Eurosport where he's doing a kind of rah rah movement like a fan rather than a player.

I wish Andy would concentrate on his climb back into the singles and leave DC to our other players After all Dan, Ross and Jamie Murray do need to be given an opportunity to shine

Who are we to question Andy's participation in the tie? If the back was that bad he would not play. It is as simple as.

Eurosport probably won't have bradnam. It will be someone like Jason Goodall and Arvind Parmar methinks. Who are both great comms and do many events on ttv.

While like you  I don't think DC is that important relative to the tour, the fact is now that GB is back in the world group the only way they can stay there is if Andy plays.  I took the same position as you when they were in a lower league but I can quite understand why Andy would feel he's letting the team and in particular Liam Smith down if he were not to play now.
