Good fight from Jamie, but David was is way too good for him. Never needed to get out of 1st gear out there.

Looked like Dave gave Baker that game in the first set. However, Jamie played much better in the second half of the match, and I'm pleased that he played positive tennis, looking to dictate a number of the points. If there is anything worse, it is losing heavily, and playing passive rubbish. He should be proud of his effort today, and, although it states the obvious, Dave was many levels too good for him.

Good training match and congrats to the brave Scotsman.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Baker put in a spirited display. David played this match as if it was a practice session.

An, Zimonjic, Baker, (Miranda) It doesn't look like World Group.

Re: Nalbandian def. Baker 6-1 6-3 6-3 - Argentina 1 - Great Britain 0

this could have been such an interesting tie if Murray was in & also, if he had a good team to back him up. It's a shame.

But well done, D.
