I would just like to say how disappointed I was with the coverage the BBC has given to the Davis CUp Final. No in play updates. Just a result. COme on Beeb just because there are no Brits playing doesn't mean we don't watch out for the scores.

Well done Russia. Look foward to Scotland competing soon. :-)

Delighted that the best team won!. After all Safin has gone through in his career, it was only fitting that he should win the cup for the Russians.

Well done to Russia. I didn't think it would go down to the wire and it sounded like a fantastic match. What a pity the BBC didn't have any TV coverage - not even a highlights package :-(

Can anyone tell me how to read previous threads? I suppose this is a useless question because when I'm able to get to my computer in maybe 6 hours time this thread will have disappeared.

Russia beat some strong teams en- route to the final, and fully deserved their second davis cup. As a nation they have superiour stregnth in depth, a tribute to their hunger for sucsess.
