Davis Cup trophy

Countdown to the 2015 Davis Cup final

26 November:

Leon Smith picked 3 singles players in his team, which means that Andy will play doubles with his brother Jamie Murray on Saturday. Kyle Edmund will make his Davis Cup debut against David Goffin tomorrow.
Johan van Herck decided to preserve Steve Darcis for the doubles, so Ruben Bemelmans will face Murray on Friday.

Should it come to a decisive fifth rubber, Darcis would probably face James Ward on Sunday.

7 October:

On this day in 1978, Britain beat Australia to reach the Davis Cup final for the first time since 1937. Paul Hutchins (Ross’ father) was captain at the time:

“The semi-final victory was very sweet against Australia because Australia against Great Britain, whether it was cricket or tennis was always a battle which was interesting. We played it indoors on a supreme court at Crystal Palace and rather like Andy is the mainstay in the British team I had Buster Mottram as the mainstay in my team. He was a very good player in those days and loved the Davis Cup. He won amazing matches for us against all the odds. John Lloyd was also a good player, and we played Tony Roche and John Alexander in the singles then came up against a very good doubles team in Ross Case and Geoff Masters.”
