But he didn't even play vs Estonia although he was on the team.
Yeah, I don't know if there's been some falling out between him and the rest of the team or what. I follow him on Twitter and he has always been pumped up for Davis Cup. I can't imagine him randomly deciding he needs to "focus on his doubles career" like the article says unless he knew he wasn't going to be picked anyway.
Anyway, that's that for another year. The atmosphere in the 2nd and 3rd matches was really dead, we needed to win every match where Nieminen wasn't playing and everyone knew the tie was done once McGee was beaten. At least we stayed up, I'm not sure how many more years we will unless at least one more player gets up to McGee's level.
