    A shame Raonic and Andy aren't playing, but with both out it's hard not to see a comfortable British victory
  • Edmund lost to Pospisil so it's 1-1 after day one.

    Kyle decided that it would be unfair on Sunday ticket holders if we won 3-0 and made Sunday meaningless!

    Watching on BBC. First game Edmond at 4-4 first set. Edmonds totally useless so far. 45% serve percentage. Canadian player a bit injured as well. Commentators trying to blame speed of court . Way too many unforced errors. Bit better third set but ultimately gutless.

    Missed the Evans game as it was online / red button / not very well advertised.

    The deciding rubber is on now via Red Button BBC 2. Hope Edmonds shows a bit of fight and sprit in this match.
  • Currently serving for a two sets to love lead.
  • I think the Canadian is about to be disqualified.
  • Unbelievable as Canadian loses his serve to go 2 -1 down in 3Rd set and launches a ball at lightening speed straight into the umpires left eye. What a shiner and automatic default. Unbelievable Jeff

    Lost point, hit ball in frustration, unfortunately the ball hit umpire in the eye. Disqualified. Edmonds 2 sets up so would have probably won anyway.
  • Edmunds had it won, but a shame for Canadian to lose like that.

  • That looked really painful
  • Quality TV though ha ha
  • I've just seen it. Blimey!
  • Edmunds had it won, but a shame for Canadian to lose like that.

    And a shame for Kyle to "win" like that.
    Took away his moment of glory
  • Quality TV though ha ha

    Looks a complete accident yet Dan Evans looks like he's pissing himself laughing around 12secs

  • Would have been good to have seen HawkEye
  • If I was the umpire I'd be speaking to Andrew Castle about contacting First4lawyers.
  • France v GB live on BBC Two.

    Edmund down one set to Pouille on clay in Rouen, but is at 5-4 in the second set.

    Murray isn't playing due to injury.

    #17 Pouille
    #22 Gasquet
    #30 Simon
    #40 Paire
    #46 Mahut

    Several missing due to injury though, no Tsonga, Monfils or Gasquet. With them available we wouldn't stand a chance. I still don't fancy our chances anyway

  • Pouille wins second set tie break against Edmund.
  • edited April 7
    Any time Edmund gets an opening, Pouille shuts the door on him... Still on serve in the third set, 3-2.
  • Pouille breaks serve following game for 4-2.
  • Pouille beat Edmund in three sets.

    Evans struggling as well, down 1 set.
  • France win the tie 3-0 after winning in the doubles too.

    Oh well, there's always next year...
  • At least Andy won't have to play tiring Davis Cup matches for the rest of the year...
  • Thought Pouille played well, with some great drop shots. Edmonds didn't play badly just that Pouille was better. I like clay as a surface. France have a much better strength in depth & stronger club & regional tennis base than the UK & it showed.
  • Always going to be a difficult tie on clay, without Andy and experienced players for France. Still very disappointed but gives Andy time to rest and recuperate.
