The Fresh Face of the Enemy
Posted by gauloises1 on March 3, 2010
So I haven’t talked a lot about Great Britain’s upcoming Europe/Africa Zone II or whatever tie with Lithuania in Vilnius. And you know why? Because we’re going to lose. Seriously. We are going to lose to Lithuania.
The British team – James Ward, Dan Evans, Ken Skupski and Colim Fleming – have never won a single Davis Cup rubber. Flemski get a partial pass on the basis that they haven’t played one, but god only knows what Dan Evans’ excuse is. For existing.
Meanwhile, they’ll be facing a Lithuanian team whose average age is 17.
And who will be led by Ricardas Berankis, who recently made the quarters in San Jose and according to tennistical experts we should all fear.
And they’re all cuter than our guys (except the hot half of Flemski and, possibly, John Lloyd).
We’re going to lose. We’re going to lose and then we’re going to die of shame. Just a heads-up.
