The two remaining matches are usually 3 setters made up of the 'lesser' players of the DC team, or the losing team gives it as a walkover as their really is no point being there.

Andy and Jamie Baker will probably play the dead rubbers against any of Zovko / Cilic and Karanusic. Zovko looked like he was carrying a spare tyre today so maybe 1 hour of running on his own isn't his thing.

Is there any chance to see Henman playing his last match tomorrow?

I'm wondering if it will be on TV. The BBC have a nasty habit of ignoring dead rubbers, even though they have allocated the air time. I would watch them!

Tim has said he wont play any dead rubbers so no. His last appearance :sad:

Gives Jamie Baker a good chance to have a Davis Cup match tomorrow, and maybe even Jamie Murray will play. Nothing to lose by him playing.

Ditto. And I agree it is a very 'nasty habit' of theirs... they have the rights to live sports coverage , SHOW IT!! :o

Why not at least show it on interactive, they have 3 channels.. surely there is no harm in doing that? :scratch:

I'm willing to bet they'll not cover them, as usual. :rolleyes:

The BBC say on their site coverage might change if the tie is decided on Sat - The match on Friday when most people at work was on interactive. When I got up in the morning on interactive they were showing the women's footie so I left the TV set on interactive with my fingers crossed and thankfully it went straight into the tennis so when my DVD player started recording it was recording the tennis. There tennis coverage apart from Wimbly is woeful and given wimbledon is only two weeks of the year you still get brits complaining about the coverage it's given.

I hope they have some decent tennis tomorrow because it's will take me 1.5hours to get there and then 1.5 hours back.

Thanks for posting the info. I was hoping Andy would play he's desperately short of match practice. Not sure if i'm going to bother going for a couple of three set matches between players ranked outside the top 100. i'd like to support the two Jamies but the rubbers are dead and it's a bit of a trip getting to Wimbledon

Has anyone got coverage of the Jamie Baker match? :o

Sue Barker said that the coverage would be moving over to interactive but there doesn't appear to be anything on any of the three [freeview] interactive channels... :scratch:

Assuming you are in the UK then you can get it on the BBC sport website.
