Well okay then. Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne confirmed.

Canberra has good flights and a nice new set of courts though...

Have to give full marks to Jordan Thompson for his performance winning 2 rubbers for AUS. Well done.

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

It seems Matt is mates with all the Aussie boys, even Kyrgios and Tomic, and his presence is a morale and enthusiasm booster.
At the tie in Sydney versus SVK, he was moving from end to end on the sidelines with one or two other guys to cheer on the Aussie player.
He is definitely close with Hewitt, and that would be his ticket to participate in each tie.
It's a good training block for Matt too which has probably assisted in his doubles ranking rise into the top 100.

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

Can anyone tell me what the story is with Matt Reid?? He seems to follow Hewitt around like a puppy and constantly appears at all Davis Cup matches..doing what I am not sure. If he was ranked number 5 in the country then sure it would make sense. But in his case he barely plays singles and his doubles results have been haphazard at best......

Intriguing tidbit, but hard to see how it plays into DC...

I could be completely wrong and this may have just been a one-off incident, but from the way Bernard's girlfriend was talking it didn't seem to be. Posted this on tennisforum the day it happened (was just before he played Bellucci):

Some drama in the Tomic camp. I was charging my phone in MCA, and John walked right past me with the guy in the orange top and the girl in the hat (Tomic's girlfriend?) in his players' box. The girl was half crying and almost yelling at John, saying he was getting everyone to ignore her for no reason (specifically referencing Sara and some other guy) but John kept denying it and saying "what are you talking about?" all while the guy in the orange top is trying to comfort her and calm her down. Then Sara appears out of MCA and starts talking quietly to the girl in the hat along with the guy in the orange top, and eventually she seemed to calm down before they all went inside.

Lol - Bernie is much more reliable on the court than Nick when it comes to DC, and Groth's form remains poor, notwithstanding doubles progress so far (presumably aided by the speeding up of courts/lighter balls Federer's being talking about).

So what is going on with Bernie? I hadn't heard the stuff about his gf - assumed it was round 500 in the TA vs John Tomic spat over lack of wc for his sister??

In any case, given home ground and absence of Berdych at least a chance the boys can pull it off, assuming Nick decides to care that day.

I wonder if Bernard's withdrawal has anything to do with trouble between his girlfriend and father. There was some drama going on during the AO...

Good time for Thompson to debut seeing as Berdych won't be playing.
