I watched all three sets. It was a fantastic match played in good humour. During the final game of the first set, which he lost 6-1, Dan indulged in friendly banter with his opponent's coach, perhaps asking if Tom Paul was unbeatable. The two commentators agreed that Dan had played well in the first set and did not deserve such a low score. Tom finished rallies well and had quite a lot of luck. 

Tom could not keep it up and ended the second set broken once. Both had break points in the final set with Dan winning  6 - 4.
Does anyone know if the match is being reshown anywhere?

CNN have an Interesting article at https://edition.cnn.com/2022/01/11/tennis/novak-djokovic-covid-statement-intl-hnk/index.html.  When he should have been isolating Novak had an interview with  L'Equipe becaue he "didn't want to let the journalist down" He didn't bother to tell him that he had Covid.

According to Times Radio, the Australian government might be trying to do a face saving deal with Djok. If he leaves the country voluntarily now he can come back next year. If he doesn't he will be deported which will mean that he will have to stay out for three years.

I was watching Sky news yesterday when it was announced that Trumps lawyer, Giuliani, was to hold a press conference at the Four Season hotel Philidalphia. later this was corrected to Four Seasons nursery, a very basic garden centre.   Guiliana made allegations of corruption at the count and claimed to have sixteen (I think,) witnesses to the the fact that they were not allowed to see the ballot papers properly and that the state had a reputation for malpracices at voting counts.  It was not until this morning that I heard that the wrong place had been booked.  You can read about it  in the article Philedelphia Inquirer, https://www.inquirer.com/news/four-seasons-landscaping-philly-trump-giuliani-hotel-biden-20201108.html

I thought it was better to open a thread for this charity tournament rather than have comments spread over different threads.

For information about the tournament as well as the OOP, you'll find this here - https://www.tennis365.com/tennis-features/battle-of-the-brits-when-is-it-who-will-take-part-schedule-tv-and-video-on-demand-channels/

No time is stated but as the US's Tennis Channel is showing it from 8 am ET, then that will be 1 pm here.


According to "Total TV Guide"coverage on Amazon Prime will start live daily at 12.50pm for the 1pm start

Where to watch in the UK - unfortunately Amazon Prime aren't covering it, preference being given to Chengdu, it but TennisTV is.  Hopefully though a free live stream will be found for both Andy's and Cameron's matches.  Play starts Mon-Fri at 1:30pm local, 6:30am BST.

Andy's match tomorrow will be showing on Amazon Prime Video after all, at I think 12.30pm UK time.  There is a match from the Zhuhai Championships being shown now.

I watched the Laver Cup on Friday on Eurosport and found it frustrating that they switched to commercials  as soon as a game finished. On Thursday I found out that matches were after all being shown on Amazon, without commercials and heard the advice being given to players by Rafa.  Detailed advice was given to Roger when he was a break down in the second set which he successfully followed.

Wow Andy must be feeling great to sign up for so much. Where is the schedule, I would like to copy the schedule into my planner.
For confirmed and one possible 2019 Andy Murray included events, Click on the button with three horizontal lines at the top of this page. Then click on "schedule".  Alternatively look at the schedule updated by ATL in the first posting in this thread.

I updated the schedule on page 1 of this thread at 8pm this evening. I can’t update it the exact moment that Andy annouces something. I’m sure Colin would say the same of the schedule on the landing page, and he’ll get round to updating it when he can.

Amen to that.  I like to wait until confirmed by Andy's website, or the event websites, but as well as adding Shanghai, I have added Vienna as a possible. It would help Andy's website were kept up to date.

Grr!  According to Amazon Prime the match hasn’t started yet, but there are already  3 games on the scoreboard.
Prime are still not showing Dan, at the moment he is a break down in the first set.
