Team GB: the Davis Cup Thread

so a shame about this year but a strong effort to get to the QFs

Hopefully next year we can go further!

In anticipation (because we won't be playing to Feb I think in 2015) for next season thought I'd make this

big positive for next year is the amount of top teams we could face only at home, France, Italy, US, Switzerland, Argies, Czech etc

I think Spain would be away, not sure about Japan or Australia etc

Lets see if Murray can fully recover and the guys around him step it up to produce some epic matches in the future like we have this year

On Murray

Depends on the surface choice really. I'd love us to put them on grass or more likely, fast indoor carpet.

Re: Team GB: the Davis Cup Thread

Whatever surface we choose needs to fit Ward's strengths.

Murray will beat Isner and Querrey (or Johnson, Sock, Young etc).


Andy Murray

Wawrinka - Kokkinakis - Simon - Thiem- Nishikori

Fognini - Paire - Evans

Re: Team GB: the Davis Cup Thread

Not a chance.

It'll be interesting to see who the fourth is though,

1) Murray
2) Ward
3) Fleming
4) Doubles player/Evans?/Edmund/Broady


Andy Murray

Wawrinka - Kokkinakis - Simon - Thiem- Nishikori

Fognini - Paire - Evans

Re: Team GB: the Davis Cup Thread

I think its touch and go, Andy gives 2 rubbers, its just down to wining one of three

can be done, as we saw last year, who knows

Playing at Glasgow, no?

Re: Team GB: the Davis Cup Thread

Good job to go up 2-1 against the USA. It's hard to imagine Isner beating Andy Murray on Sunday. GB would play France in GB in the quarterfinals. Anything is possible with Inglot and the Murrays, but France may have too much depth.
