  8. And just to round off my Davis Cup chat .. "Rafael Nadal clinched an emotional Davis Cup victory for Spain over Canada when he beat Denis Shapovalov in front of a jubilant home crowd in Madrid. His 6-3 7-6 (9-7) win sealed the title, with Roberto Bautista Agut returning to the team three days after his father's death to put the hosts 1-0 up. Bautista Agut was in tears after beating 19-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 in the opener. Nadal's win gave Spain an unassailable 2-0 lead and a sixth Davis Cup title." (BBC)
  9. GB did very well, but go out of the Davis Cup Finals after losing to Spain. Kyle won his singles, Dan lost his and then Jamie and Neal lost to Rafa and Felici in the doubles. So the host nation Spain go on to play in the final today against Canada.

  13. GB's Kyle Edmund beats Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3 6-3 Very well played Kyle !! Andy Murray being rested today. Partly due to his efforts y'day and his hip recovery, but he also has a cold .. and says he is carrying a few pounds excess in weight, lol.
  14. Jamie Murray & Neal Skupski beat Wesley Koolhof and Jean-Julien Rojer 6-4 7-6 (8-6) in deciding doubles rubber Victory for team GB on day one.
