Fair to say Nick and Purcell wont be teaming up in the doubles in the Davis Cup any time soon.
Funnily enough Nick, he probably played you off the court for the most part in that game. KK was the reason you won it.
If he had KK as a partner, he would have swept you and Ebden 6-0 6-0.

Why am I not surprised. Don't know what his plan is then because he's not lasting long in singles at Wimbledon. French Open forget it, first round at best
He said it at one of the pressers.
Hes not playing RG at all, singles or doubles.
Wimbledon he wont play doubles.
US maybe he plays both.
Whether he does any of the above who knows but id be suprised if he plays something he has now said he wont (wouldnt be suprised if he doesnt play at all)
Tomic is a strange case, he was coached by his controlling dad.This isn’t surprising.
He is what he is at this point.
He’s probably one of the laziest pro’s in recent history and he hides behind this insecurity with his bravado regarding wanting to “entertain”. He will be the kind of guy post retirement who would claim he could have won a slam if he wanted to.
You even see it on the court, he barely gets to balls half the time and is as far off the top players physically as your local player is talent wise from the pro tour.
There’s a reason why Nadal always laughs when he is asked about him and Nadal almost gets offended sometimes. He isn’t a pro athlete, he’s a kid who was blessed with incredible talent that enables him to coast at that level.
Just look at Kokkanakis, even despite all the injuries he’s now in his mid 20’s, he looks like a pro athlete that has put in the hard yards and looks strong and fit. Nick barely looks like he’s set foot in a gym in his entire life.
He will be Tomic 2.0 in 3-4 years, just playing a few tournaments a year to pay for his lifestyle.
Hewitt and Purcell would need to mend some bridges for that to happen. Plus we have Peers anywayTomic is a strange case, he was coached by his controlling dad.
Nick seems like a spoilt brat and surrounded by yes people
Purcell and Kokkinakis would make a good doubles team for Davis cup but it's a shame Kyrgios keeps attacking Purcell.
Hewitt and Purcell would need to mend some bridges for that to happen. Plus we have Peers anyway
