GB v Croatia - Day one

Davis Cup

comment on the article

Everyone ready for one last trip on the Tim Henman rollercoaster then?

Andy Murray will open Britain's bid to reach the 2008 World Group against 18-year-old Marin Cilic. Henman plays the second singles match against Roko Karanusic - a late replacement for Ivan Ljubicic, who is not well enough to play.

You know the drill - post your thoughts, predictions, gossip here.

Those who ever doubted that former WORLD NUMBER 1 Lleyton Hewitt would rediscover his old self again should have witnessed his immense five-set win over Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevic.
Hewitt levelled the score at the end of the first day of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off in Belgrade, overcoming Tipsarevic 62 36 46 61 61.the man a tennis god .

i can't imagine growing up without cheering on tim henman at wimbledon. He has been the symbol of British tennis for so long, the household name amongst british families, and never let the media pressure get the better of him.

"62 36 46 61 61."

Sixty-two, thirty-six, forty-six, sixty-one, sixty-one. Strangest tennis score I've ever seen.

At first I wondered if it was Miss Universe's vital statistics.

I don't remember seeing anything from you on 22 November 2003, or towards the end of the summer 2005. That was when life was VERY sweet.

By the way, I tipped your lot for the RWS months ago. I posted my forecast on the RWC 606 MB before the tournament started. I stand my that prediction, but I make it with a heavy heart, as it unfortunately includes you lot beating England in the quarters.
