Britain just isn't a tennis nation...
So, Britain has been relegated to the bottom tier of the Davis Cup and can look forward in the future to playing against teams of the stature of Surinam, Namibia, Bhutan, Andorra, and the Maldives (I'm guessing here, I don't follow tennis closely enough to know the real composition of the group, but I'm probably not far wrong).

However what I'm looking forward to is when we lose against that opposition and get relegated again down into the All-Penguin AU Davis Cup. Kaark!

Now that would be wonderful, though Lawn Tennis might be tricky in sub-zero climes. It might have to be all-penguin AU ice tennis. Curling with attitude.

You beat me to your punchline! As I read the first paragraph, I was thinking "Could be worse. Could be the Antarctic Penguin Team Britain gets to play."

And we'd still lose.

I hear there are three people in the Maldives who can play tennis, so we're probably doomed already. Kaaaark of woe.
