Net Gains: Put your shirt on Chelsea fan to knock GB out of Davis Cup

A Wimbledon-loving Chelsea supporter is hoping to send Britain into Davis Cup oblivion. In the absence of Andy Murray, Turkey's Marsel Ilhan, the world No 118, will be the highest-ranked singles player in next month's relegation play-off against Britain at Eastbourne, which will decide who will drop down next year to the lowest division alongside the likes of Andorra and Moldova. The bad news for Britain is that Ilhan, who had never played on a grass court until two years ago, has made big strides on the surface. After first-round losses in Wimbledon qualifying in 2008 and 2009, the 23-year-old from Istanbul opened his 2010 grass-court season by reaching the quarter-finals of the Challenger tournament in Nottingham, went on to win three matches in Wimbledon qualifying and last week became the first Turkish man ever to win a match in the main draw, beating Brazil's Marcos Daniel 6-7 4-6 6-2 6-3 6-1. He eventually lost to Victor Hanescu. "We have no grass courts in Turkey, but I enjoy playing on grass now," Ilhan said. "It suits my game, especially my serve and groundstrokes. I also like to volley." As for the Davis Cup, Ilhan said his team had nothing to lose: "It would be a huge thing for us to win in Britain." Having stayed in Chelsea for the last three years during Wimbledon, Ilhan has become a Stamford Bridge fan. "I've bought a Chelsea shirt, like I did last year," he said. "I like the colour." What number? "It's a No 10 shirt. I just like the number. I've got my own name on the back."

Album: Drive-By Truckers, The Big To Do (PIAS)

Since 2008's magnificent Brighter Than Creation's Dark, Drive-By Truckers have released both a live album and a catch-up compilation of B-sides and outtakes, and continued their occasional alliances with soul legends by playing Booker T's back-up band on his Grammy-winning Potato Hole album. In other words, all the kinds of diversionary tactics usually practiced by bands short of new material.
