Thursday's medley from Kitzbuehel

The tiebreaker against Switzerland goes ahead at 5pm local time. This is Scotland's Gillian Howard. Can we reveal the secret now? I think so. Gillian very nearly didn't make it here. Her recovery from knee surgery, complicated by a stress fracture in her foot, saw her still doubtful a few days before the event in Kitzbuehel got underway. She's looked sore at times, but has played well. A real star!

And here are our other stars: Alan Smith, David Mundell and Karen Strang! Win or lose tonight, they have worn the saltire with pride.
