What the last five set doubles rubber? That's for sure. In the Davis Cup. Final yet. I mean, Doug. Is the one that really has home for you? I think what you're missing. But what we're going to lose? Because if you asked if you asked a bunch of tennis fans, their favourite ever singles much was I'm not sure I mean, pro- probably if you Oviously there have been some unreal Davis Cup singles matches. But I think most people probably wouldn't saw it Davis Cup on balance Davis cut much is. But if yours people their most memorable ever doubles match that they've seen. I think a law would say Davis Cup thing. I guess sort of rhythm of the doubles match really suits the Davis Cup atmosphere because it's you know, it's all bursts, and sort of these eruptions of joy that you get and it and the crowd really I think a lot of the crowd in here. I mean, obviously, a lot of them to have how core tennis fans, but lots of them as well, it just hey for a day out and occasion that then maybe so worried about the tactics of singles, and constructing points, and all that sort of thing they just wanna see winners and quick reactions the net volleys, and you just and you get all that in doubles in it. It just seems to really suit the Davis Cup one thing. I would should just say is the qualifying round in February is still going to be played as four singles and doubles middle's. I mean, albeit best to three sets. It's never going to be the same. And also that's not the final the the actual order of the the match is going to be played in the finals next year are going to be two singles of one. Double. So we still going to get doubles all shows to three cents, but we done. I don't think we know yet. Whether that's going to be in the middle of the three or whether it's going to be sort of the third match if required, but at least, at least, we still have doubles. But you're quite right. We're never going to have a day like today again. And I think this is a perfect opportunity to just reminisce a little bit before we sign off for the night. Because over the years, I mean, Catherine I've spent what seven years on the tennis podcast talking about doubles rubbers. And and that unique nece that the special feeling you get and what are your favorites? From over the years. Have you got a specific one, Matt? Well, the one I mean, obviously today. You really would put today up there with with things you've seen previously. I think I think being here has helped massively. I've I've not been to another Davis Cup. Doubles rubber live. I mean, and then the other ones for me that comes to mind a couple from Britain's Britain's run in twenty fifteen the the one I think you mentioned a couple of days ago, Mary and Mary against growth in Hewitt, and then also say it's England and Mary against the Bryan brothers. I think both they were both five sets and both just yet. I would just fantastic because they just folks are important the way that they were just in the middle of the tie and five sets, and yeah, just those two come to mind for me immediately. Katherine. I mean with the policies for both the recency boys under the British boy. Yeah. Both of those will come to mind for me. I think actually the second one you mentioned that the one in the the US tie elements of that possibly more memorable. Because I mean that whole time was I mean, I think just about on balance GB expected to win that semifinal against Australia. But GB definitely weren't expected to win that tie against the the USA in oversee James woods victory. When too long way as did that, which the doubles. But I was caught. So for the the semifinal doubles Hewitt and growth against Maureen Murray, and that was one of the most special things I've ever seen something. That's I mean, just had everything didn't it not only that the Davis Cup misfield the Lleyton Hewitt factor. The brothers playing together. Thinking about that makes me emotional too. Yeah. Me too me too. So I've got a few here at tennis podcast on Twitter. There have been flooding in memories. Elliot's come up with some caucus here and shit and Luba Cheech beating the Brian's in two thousand and five remember that I think that was a way as well..
