Basically it took the Bryans winning a slam and getting to the top of the rankings before PMac was willing to take a chance on a pure doubles team and now the Bryans are as close to a guaranteed point as we have. So I think that if they couldn't play, he wouldn't want to take that risk so he'd have at least one play-able singles player in there.
Just my opinion
Sorry Andrew lol
That's what I figured, before I wrote it-forgot to put it in, about James & Mardy. Interesting about Pat M waiting, but makes sense-they were shaky until they got that first slam. But not sure about the Fit Bryan + Singles player-they're twins, surely they do all the same stuff hence same injuries at same time.
Maybe if I wipe out the rest of the US Davis Cup team for a while, Jim will get a look in?
