Chris Eaton did well at Wimbledon, he is young and we may as well use DC to get his confidence and ability up. It is not as if our singles are brimming with quality haha.
The Davis Cup is being held on hard court, and Eaton isn't very good at all on hard court. Just look at his playing activity.
If it was on grass, they wouldn't hesitate to pick him. Even though they did pick Boggo last time
