Now the dust has settled on a disappointing day, I think over the course of a weekend AM played some very good clay court tennis.  Fognini was inspired today and I think a few top players would have struggled to stay with him he was that good.  Team GB in the quarters was a good result but until there is another player who is capable of stepping up to the mark it is probably as far as the team can go, but to think about the mess the team was in when it was under the leadership of John Lloyd and to now all those involved have done an excellent job in restoring some pride in Team GB.  Considering Andy was recovering from a stomach bug and most normal people 48 hours post bug are still resting up and deciding what foods might not make a bid for freedom and there was Andy giving it everything on a tennis court!!  I say well done to him and total proof for those who still doubted it that it means everything for him to represent his country.

I really do think that Fognini looks like a panto villain with too much guy liner on and don't' spit during your post match interview - but he played inspired tennis and deserved the win (but at one point he was in danger of tripping over his own ego).

Onwards and upwards hate the red dirt season but it is one step closer to the green green grass of home so bring it on.

I'm not too disheartened by the Fognini loss, because I'm glad Fognini is proving himself as I like him. All the best in the future for him. Hope he plays like that more often.

Thought Andy played well today. Especially as clay is his least favored surface.Came up against an inspired player who is playing really well at the moment, and is a clay court specialist.

Disappointing but as others said, great achievement to get this far and until there is another player capable of winning singles matches this is about as far as the team could go. Would have been Federer and Wawrinka in the next round anyway.

How does Andy feel about this Davis cup weekend?  I have not had a chance to see any of the matches, but I was so disappointed for Andy yesterday.

Having read the reports in a few papers today I was relieved that they weren't down on our Andy.  There was due recognition of what a great clay court player Fogy is and how well he played yesterday and also that Andy came in to the match having been ill and having had to complete his first singles match the same day as the dubs (which btw can't be equated with Fogy playing a longer singles match in good time on the Friday).

Oh and a word of support for ww's plea for less bickering and more tennis please.  If you've not been on for a day and are catching up it really brings it home how stretches of a thread are often totally off topic and are utterly boring to anyone not involved in the bickering.  I dread to think what visitors to the site make of it.  It's not conducive to encouraging new people to join us.

Glad you said that Ruthie - I get a bit annoyed with all the doom and gloom stuff about how Andy will inevitably be criticised in the media for losing a match, then nothing is said when that doesn't happen.

All reports I've read have been very fair to the GB DC team - it was a big ask, they did their best. Fognini's performance on Sunday was at a different level from Friday and Saturday.

I think the newspapers are much better than they've been in the past. 

I don't know if you are talking about me when you say about doom and gloom, but to clarify, I wasn't predicting the newspapers would abuse him, at least not the sports journalists who actually covered the event.  I was talking about the general public, the casual tennis viewers who had already been mouthing off.  It wasn't a prediction, it was an observation.

I actually think the journalists know this, which is why they are keen to set the record straight.  In fact, I've noticed for some time that a lot of the sports writers seem to go the extra mile to defend Andy, which inevitably winds up the haters, but so be it!  Half don't follow tennis, and the other half are frustrated Fed fans annoyed that someone else is getting praise.
