Another ‘love sport post’: Davis Cup

Because nobody cares when their country isn’t in it.  Because it’s bizarre that a nation can win behind the performance of a couple of men.  Because it’s another of those tournaments whose history began as a private bet but which is now a public international battle.  Because tennis isn’t a team game.  Because the final point was a contest to the last shot.  And because, after it, our heroic Scot fell to the ground in exhausted triumph.
