  1. Re: Fed Cup Play-Off April 20-21 - Support thread - Who is going etc.

    Looking forward to seeing you all again tomorrow (though it’s already after midnight, so maybe that should read today!)
  2. Re: FED CUP WG2 PLAYOFFS, APRIL 20-21st 2019. TICKET REQUESTS

    Hi Sally, just to confirm, one ticket for both days please - if it's possible to get on an aisle, that would be a huge help, but I realise that can't be guaranteed. Looking forward to seeing you...
  3. Re: Fed Cup Feb 6-9 2019 - Support thread -who is going etc.

    Lovely to see so many of you last week! Hope it's London, in which case I hope to see lots of you again. My back won't cope with the train journey to Bolton, so I really hope it's not there - at...
  4. Re: FED CUP PLAYOFFS, APRIL 20-21st 2019. TICKET REQUESTS

    Thanks Sally. Yes please, probably just one for both days - if I don't change that by the deadline (either to add another one or to pull out if they hold it somewhere that takes too long to get to by...

    AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2019 - Brits in qualifying

    A mixed bag of draws for the Brits in Melbourne, though it's good to see 7 taking part in singles qualifying.

    GB Men

    One rubbish draw, one even-looking draw and one really nice draw, though...
  6. Re: Fed Cup Feb 6-9 2019 - Support thread

    The ticket sale date rushed up on me a bit too quickly (it doesn't help that my mind has been on all the things I need to do before going off on Thursday to spend 6 weeks in the US) and I'm kicking...

    Re: DC New Format - Feb "qualifying" etc

    As far as I can tell, possible GB opponents in February are:

    HOME v SUI

    BY LOT v BRA (played us in 1969 but that was a year before the cut-off), COL, BLR*, CHN* or DOM*

    AWAY v AUS, BIH^,...

  9. Re: Davis Cup 2018 World Group Play-offs Support thread - Speculation, travels, info etc.

    My third thing has already gone wrong (though hopefully that will save the rest of you!) - with the worst possible timing, I'm unwell and my back has flared up so I had to cancel the tonight's train...

    Re: Davis Cup/World Team Cup - NEW FORMAT

    Agreed. I do think the LTA probably did cast their vote for no though.

    I can think of at least one possible scenario, but I'd better explain who the characters are first in case some people...

    At least we can say we did our bit (if we can assume we had at least some influence on the LTA) - I wonder how the Belgian, Dutch & French players and fans, among others, must...

    Worrying developments - Belgium are voting yes, when I'd have thought they'd be one of the least likely countries to do so. Their fans and players must be livid.
