    Shame you missed it but not the best match Andy has ever played. Just managed to edge it in the end. The Hungarian played out of his skin and showed some real talent.

    Well done lads! I got in just at the end of the interview with Colin. Glad they made it 5-0. An excellent showing by them all. Think Leon Smith comes across very well. He's doing a great job. cheers cheers cheers

    Well done to all the team and all the supporters - a very successful weekend all round. Plaudits to Andy for playing a dead rubber and giving the fans what they paid to see - not everyone would have done that!

    Couldn't agree more. Must say I was surprised that he played but his allegiance to his scottish fans was priority
    Well done Andy

    That is a fanatstic weekend of tennis all finished. Feel a bit flat now! Felt so sorry for Andy he was on his last legs but so much wanted to finish it. The crowd didn't falter and we did all we could to keep him going. Colin was excellent and played extremely well. If he can improve his consistency he has a future as a singles player. Sad saying good by to all the am,commers there are just 5 of us left tonight so heading off to Bella Italia later. Apparently the DC site or the LTA will have all the informstion for next year out on Wednesday. Hope we will be able to met up again then.

    Murray heads back to London tonight for a few days rest before Asia next week. I, on other hand, have 2hr drive to Oban. Not so glamorous!

    Fabulous weekend - a real privilege to support Team GB - the atmosphere was unbelievable - the best ever I think! Loved every minute (except the train trip home but that's another story!)

    He was dead on his feet on Friday so I wasn't surprised when they said Flembo was playing. Gave him a chance to show off his singles skills and he did really well! Hungary didn't field their No 1 in the first dead rubber.

    I'm abit confused, Hungarian ranking are

    228 Kellner, Adam (HUN) 213 -10 19
    262 Balazs, Attila (HUN) 179 -16 20
    484 Lukacs, Denes (HUN)


    but the report says Andy played Gyorgy Balazs ranked 484.

    Has Sebo Kiss even got a ranking?

    No,Sebo Kiss doesn't have a ranking - he gave up the pro tour to concentrate on his law studies. I think Attila and Gyorgy Balazs are brothers but not sure what Gyorgy's ranking is.

    It's Lukacs who is ranked 484 at present. Gyorgy's career high was 480 - he is Attila's elder brother, and has only played 4 Futures tournaments this year. I think they said he had had a lot of injury problems and no longer plays seriously.

    Darn good level he has if that is right. Really speedy about the court.

    Well, Great Britain has advanced to the second tier of the Davis Cup, and Australia remains in the second tier of the Davis Cup. Good luck to both of us for next year!
