After the first day of action, on the grass of Queen’s Club, Great Britain and France a in a deadlock, with both favourites winning their respective rubber.

There has been no miracle for James Ward, on Friday, as he meekly lost 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 against Gilles Simon. The world number 11 never gave Ward a chance to enter in the match, showing why he is the best-ranked player of his country and ratifying his current good form.

The second match was, at least for two sets, much more contested. Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga did their best not to make each other any presents, and while one was trying to level the tie, the other intended to give the visitors a 2-0 lead.

In the end, the world number three prevailed 7-5, 7-6(10), 6-2, but not without some fabulous shot-making from both men, including this beauty from the Scot:


The action continues on Saturday with the doubles, which brings two questions:

  1. Is Richard Gasquet (foot injury) feeling good enough to play alongside Nicolas Mahut?
  2. Will Andy Murray team up with brother Jamie?

Questions to which we will not have an answer until Saturday morning.
