Post Who will back up Murray in Davis Cup (Against Poland)

I know I should have put this in the Davis Cup section, but I really want to hear your thoughts. Britain is going against Ukraine in Davis Cup in March and they are yet to have a backing up player for Andy. They are doing play-offs with six players and the one that does the best gets to do the other singles rubber.

The players are: Josh Goodall, James Ward, Alex Slabinsky, Jamie Baker, Dan Evans and Colin Fleming.

I think Goodall will get it, but Ward is a close second.
Who do you think should get the second spot or who do you think WILL get the second spot?

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 2 WINS, 7 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 11 WINS, 5 finals, 11 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, 1 Davis Cup title...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 558-166...
TITLES: 35 and counting...

Re: Who will back up Murray in Davis Cup

I think Dan Evans should be given a shot, he's young and could do with some DC experience.

Agreed! John even said he wanted to let other young players have a shot.

Re: Who will back up Murray in Davis Cup

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.

Rusedski wanted to play but they didn't want them. Now they will suffer the pain of a first round loss.

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

Re: Who will back up Murray in Davis Cup

I think Lloyd has given up on Boggo after his dismal performance against Peya. He isn't in good form either. I reckon Goodall should and will get it. Evans is nowhere near the standard required yet, Eaton was a one hit wonder and Slabinsky is hardly setting the world on fire.

I can't really see Colin Fleming winning this tournie either.
