Life in Those Old Bones
A special Davis Cup Sunday after a down-and-up week
Is the Davis Cup what it used to be?
Not even close.
Is the Davis Cup worth saving?
Absolutely, and if you have any doubts, please review footage from Sunday in Manchester, England where a sellout crowd of 13,000 – the largest single-day crowd ever for Davis Cup in Britain – stayed on mission for more than eight hours. They roared the home team to one of the more dramatic victories in a competition that has had no shortage of cliffhangers in its 123 years of existence.
