Thread: PIQUE Davis Cup 2019, 18-24th November MADRID, WORLD GROUP THREAD

    Fabulous breaker, thought Struff faded a bit at end- well done Dan and GB! Into the semi, confirmed there will be no Doubles. Maybe not too surprising but still disappointing even if the victory assured.

    I’ll remember the reactions of Dan and Leon after this epic win for a very long time! It meant so very much. Tears of pure joy!

    Bravo Dan. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Tremendous win. I loved his celebration! I think he's a very happy bunny! Kyle and Dan both heroes today. So happy for them both. They'll feel so much better about themselves now. Been travelling all day today so had to keep in touch via livescores. Managed to see most if Dan's match. I hope Andy has an idea now what we fans go through! Judging by his reactions, I think he does!

    Just watched Russia V Croatia and well I thought they'd stolen Andy's coaster.

    It was deffo Joker's arm that lost it for them.

    Dan was magnificent today! It was really great to see his reaction at the end. For me it completely wiped out his previous two matches. I could barely breathe during the last two points! Now into the semi against ???? And GB assured of a place in finals next year so no March tie to qualify.

    Well. put it like this... I got on a plane and booked tickets mainly to see Andy but very very happy to support GB. I was not expecting this coming into the court early and at least see him practising for ten minutes ridiculously close up was icing on the cake. Wish I had lost my reserve and wished him well going forward.
    B. Another wonderful day. This time I was sat with a group of ten from a tennis club and boy did we shout and cheer. Kyle has looked really, but really focused yesterday and today (well what was today). Early on against Kohlschreiber it seemed like forehand v backhand but there was only lovely point where Kyle out-backhanded Phillip. When Kohlschreiber made a bad error one of the group shouted out "Wunderbar, Phillip" and he turned round and gave a very disdainful look and proceeded to ace Kyle.
    Dan... was amazing. The first (service) game by Struff must have taken less than a minute and we all gulped. Then Dan had break points in the second. Then near the end of the set he broke with a wonderful game but unfortunately was broken straight back. But came through in the TB. The second seemed like Struff had been stung into action and it was a less even set of tennis. In the third, Dan sometimes seemed to be hanging on to his serve, would get a point on Struff's serve, then the first serve machine started up. Dan also seemed to be mentally tiring in the second half of the third. He was increasingly beating himself up for any UEs and I think the mental effort of having to focus on getting returns back against that serve was taking its toll. Being there made me realise just how aware Dan is of everything going on around the court and how he wants to comment on it! He did amazingly to take it to a UE then played at a completely different level to Struff in it. It was so so wonderful to see how much it meant to him and his happiness and the rest of the GB team's joy in both the result and for Dan

    And so on to the Semi final!

    Excuse multiple posts but I have received a reply from the LTA. I have four tickets in my name waiting for me at the ticket office. If anybody wants one or more of the other three and has not been successful emailing and applying for tickets, you can put a message here (preferably on this thread as I find it difficult to navigate to personal messages here on my phone) and we can arrange a time to meet! Though not until p.m.!
    Otherwise I will offer them to Brits in the ticket queue!
