Goooood morning everyone! Ready for some Davis Cup action? Once my internet decides to co-operate, I'll be bringing you coverage of Broady v Ramos-Vinolas live!

A bit of a different Davis Cup team this time, with notable absentees being Andy Murray, and Kyle Edmund, who's recovering from his Australian Open heroics. I'm sure this team will give it their best shot, and they'll have plenty of support here, right?

Right, fabulous, it's on BBC Red Button!

A lovely sunny morning in Marbella, not unlike, this lovely sunny morning in NI! The warm-up is underway, and Broady will serve first.

Well I was wrong, it's only 12*C in Marbella actually...

There's a massive shadow across this court, which is not ideal. Broady starts off with a double fault...0-15. A MUCH better first serve to follow; 15-all. Ramos sends a backhand long; 30-15. The British support are in full swing! Deep returning from Ramos, and Broady nets; 30-all.

Great first serve! 40-30. Bit of a miss on the serve and volley; DEUCE. An ACE! ADV GB. Gaaah, he had the forehand winner on the racquet, but it's JUST wide! DEUCE.

Broady missing another volley; BREAK POINT ESP.

Great save at the net; DEUCE. Good volleying this time; ADV GB. Ramos nets the return, and Broady gets off to a solid start!

Broady nets; 15-0. Ooooh, lovely passing shot; 15-all. Broady sends a backhand wide; 30-15. Broady coming into the net, and he nails the volley! 30-all.
