Forget never seems in touch with the players but at the same time Richard should be talking about this stuff if it's in the interests of the team. Imagine if he had had to play a live rubber.
We know what happened the last time Richard said it would be better for the team if someone else played against Roddick ... Sounded as if they were ready to just drug him up for a live 5th. As I said before Richard and Davis Cup don't mix well.
The elbow was mentioned early in the week. If he has to pull out of Metz because of this impossible Davis Cup
I didn't even think they were playing a 5th, so lucky I didn't see this one. Isn't there new DC rule that if there is one live match on Sunday, no dead 5th? Maybe the rule hasn't gone into effect yet or maybe i'm dreaming.
