Roberto Forzoni’s phone rang last night, for certain. One of the Great Britain Davis Cup squad, either those selected or left out of the team to face Ukraine this weekend, will have poured out his emotions to the psychologist whom Andy Murray summoned to the 2007 US Open when bothered by a weakened wrist and having sensed that his partnership with Brad Gilbert, his coach, was draining the life from his game.

Forzoni works 21 hours a week for the LTA and, given the ills that have beset the British game these many years, it is unlikely he has time to twiddle his thumbs. His strategy is to “maximise opportunities by minimising interferences and hassles”.
