Belgium having a great chance to go through to SF, Canada without both Raonic and Pospisil!

Serbia also without Nole, so that one could be close, too.

Australia looking quite strong with Kyrg, Kokki, Groth and yes...Hewitt!

Apparently, Tomic has been banned from Davis Cup and his dad is threatening to sue Tennis Australia

Haha, I wish I could speak french or at least understand a bit more! I keep listening to the singing bit!

I wonder if Herbert will be included in the doubles (runners up at aus with Mahut) or he's just in the squad.

I'd imagine so.
I saw them/him play at Wimledon...great server!

Very nice game on grass.


As for French...he, he, I love it so much I sarted having lessons last year...I just wish I had more time for it!

I've probably learnt most from listening to their music and singing

Oooooh chanse lise musicalnote (shame about the spelling... Yikes )

Aus 2-0 at home to Kazakhstan.

At 2-1 down and a break down, Kyrgios said "i'd rather be anywhere else".

Kokk lost in 3, K lost in 4. Poor start.

If it's slippery....Tsonga will have a good chance this afternoon. I don;t know why UK chose grass. It's probably France's best surface.

Good find, thanks LS!

I really like Rubi, a very fiery and aggressive player, he's got everything to become rubisisthebest !

....except the muscles, as he arrived on the scene where it's impossible to get anywhere without them.

When I talked to him and his coach at Roehampton, his coach kept repeating how Rublev will have a lot more muscle next year, so they will clearly work on his fitness in the off-season...he doesn't need a lot as he has great timing and talent, but is so thin that you can see he has 2-3 years to fill out, as he is not naturally big like Stan or Becker were.

He is not flairful and too creative, but has an amazing drive and aggression in his game, like a gust of wind, very exciting to watch.

For me, the only one of the very young ones worth following.

Did Murray reached the FO semi? And didn't ward beat Querrey on clay? I would have chosen HC probably.

He did but he's won Wimby and OG.
Ward made r3 of Wimby and Queens sf beating Stan, Querrey, Mannarino. He says it's his best surface.

He could if his serve gets going.
But he hasn't played well for a long time...since Toronto (or was it Montreal?) last year...

A good chance for him to make up with French crowd after last year injury fiasco in DC final...

It's probably easier for them to play with this 50/50 crowd, less pressure.

You're right!
Just saw now when he was changing the shoes, the white ones are much grippier...are they allowed?
I suppose he desperately needs those legs to be well planted for his muscling.
I know Nole was not allowed the grippy ones a few years ago.

Just goes to show what kind players we have...the footwork on grass reveals everything!

yes for Murray mouvement is going to be key. For some reasons, Tsonga seems less at ease than Murray. Murray is very heavy and needs a huge grip to be able to change directions.

We saw the light Ward slip so I am surprised not to see Murray or TSinga slip as much.

You should see his thighs back in the day. You think Berdych's are big!

Probably because he doesn't need to rely on them so much. He moves differently from Murray, lighter on the feet.
Playing well atm.
