Would be a total disgrace if we lose this. We should win 5-0, but the worrying thing is that not one of our guys is remotely reliable against any particular level of opposition. Ward lost to someone ranked in the #800s only a couple of weeks ago.

I'm a bit surprised that Baker was picked ahead of Boggo for the final line-up, but it seems that his form at Futures level has been a little better than Boggo's so far this season. Boggo has more talent in his small finger, but at the moment seems even less capable of actually using it, which is a shame...especially as he'd surely be favoured over Baker on an indoor hard court.

Well, we have the best possible draw this year, so I'm fully expecting us to earn promotion back to Group I.

Wouldn't it be funny if we face off against your country (I'm assuming you're Dutch) next March and send you to a relegation play-off for Group II? Especially if it is Ward/Baker/Boggo who beats your #2 to do it...

Yes, I'm Dutch.
NL vs GB (or the other way around) would be fun

May I ask you why you have chosen an American flag in your settings in stead of the British one?

Jaziri cramping badly. Baker had his chance but can't capitalise.

Jaziri def. Baker 46 63 75 62



Jaziri was the favourite on paper (as far as just the rankings go), but considering their respective careers I thought that this was more than winnable for Baker. Not a good start for us, made worse by the fact that Baker had a medical timeout I believe...and couldn't take advantage of Jaziri cramping late in the 4th set.

Ward should get us level, and we should win the doubles tomorrow, so no need to panic just yet.

Hope to God we don't need to rely on a live 5th rubber to win, especially if we need to bring Fleming in for singles (should probably win anyway though).

Great Britain needs Iceland or Vanuatu to comfortable win in DC.

Baker was moving fine during the fourth set after his medical timeout at the start of the set. He will comfortably win his match on Sunday if he plays Ghorbel - so no need to panic. I was impressed with Jaziri - he is a solid player and made very few errors today.
