BATS members have been arriving in San Diego since Monday. We have been enjoying some sightseeing but later today the action will begin!
Yesterday evening we went to the LTA reception at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel to pick up our tickets and t-shirts. Some of us gate crashed the US supporters do by mistake but soon realised they were in the wrong place!
We heard the team news officially from Leon Smith, our captain:
John Isner has withdrawn due to injury and has been replaced by Donald Young.
James Ward will be the no. 2 singles player and Dom Inglot is included in the team in case Andy is not able to play the doubles with Colin Fleming. The clay court is slippery and not that slow so Leon decided James Ward’s experience was more important. James has beaten Sam Querry (at Queen’s) so that should give him confidence.
Today’s matches are:
Donald Young v Andy Murray
Sam Querry v James Ward
The action starts at 11.00 local time.
Let’s go GB!
