The Davis Cup takes place at the end of November, and all eyes are on Andy Murray, but it takes more than one man to win tennis's top team tournament...
Victory is in sight
When Great Britain faces Belgium in the final on 27-29 November tennis fans across the country will be crossing their fingers and hoping hard; for the first time in over 25 years the GB team has a good chance of winning.
Unusually in tennis, the Davis Cup is a team-based tournament. So, even though the big hitters may take part, success is down to how the whole group performs, rather than being left in the hands of one star.
The team goes wider than you might think. From experts at the Lawn Tennis Association spending countless hours analysing tapes of opponents to identify weaknesses, to the physio who’s working double shifts because his counterpart has a sickness bug — those behind the scenes are just as important as those in the limelight.
Acing the teamwork
The British team have worked hard to achieve their strong sense of unity. They’ve invested time in getting to know one another on and off the court. Strenuous daytime tennis sessions give way to evenings playing the word game Articulate, a fast-talking descriptive board game.
And whenever team members have a match, you’ll see the rest of the squad there, supporting from the crowd. Even players who were overlooked for selection have been supporting those who were picked. The atmosphere is charged with positivity and it just might be enough to win…
