Murray out of Davis Cup tie.

Here we go again i think. He's either got another injury or he's faking it because he thinks they are gonna get battered against Argentina.


Right knee according to sky sports news

Re: Murray out of Davis Cup tie.

This was a lost cause tie anyway but this decision is still disappointing - if he didn't want to go he should just have said he wasn't available when the team was picked.

Re: Murray out of Davis Cup tie.

Absolutely totally gutted. Obviously our chances of winning the tie were extremely low, but I was looking forward to some half-competitive tennis on Friday and Saturday. Now I'm seriously considering not watching it...only thing that will encourage me to tune is to the chance to see a bit of Monaco, whom I have barely seen. Otherwise, I see little joy in watching Baker, Boggo (who shouldn't have even been picked imo...but maybe now it is a good thing he was), and Jamie Murray get completely crushed. Hopefully Hutchins will, at least, make his deserved Davis Cup debut (in doubles).

Boggo vs Nalbandian on clay.

Might be lucky to win a game.

Re: Murray out of Davis Cup tie.

Hmm i think i'm gonna give up my interest in tennis the way things are going lately ..

@ this tie now, if ever there was a time when a team shouldnt even waste their time turning up - this is it.

Perfectly put mate. Usually I'm an advocate of fighting until the death, even if it is almost a completely lost cause...but seriously, why are we even bothering? It isn't as if the guys can even play on clay (with the exception of Baker)...they could be getting some reasonable challenger/futures results on hardcourts / indoors in the coming weeks, instead of wasting time on this tie.

Poor Henman and Rusedski...all their April / September '07 (the latter, not Greg ) efforts were in vain.

Very disappointing, whether he really has an injury or not.

Andy. Oh well, at least he will be more fit for his coming tournaments.

Lloyd might get a gig himself at this rate.

Probably. The statement issued by his management talks of the problems of moving from hard courts to 5 set matches on clay and then to indoor hard. Presumably the idea of withdrawal is to avoid the changes.

Disappointing, but we never had a cat in hell's chances of winning the tie anyway.

Yes but we knew that all along anyway - we knew that getting back into the World Group - yeah nice but then we would get hammered by nearly all the teams in there, we just do not have the depth and have been extremely lucky with how things fell for us to get back there.

This is a lost cause and it's a long way to go for a lost cause, too. Something tells me Andy will be okay to play in Marseille the following week. He should have just not made himself available for the tie.

Re: Murray out of Davis Cup tie.

I don't see this as that big of a deal. They probably would've lost anyway. At least now Andy can prepare himself better for his next tournament. I do agree that he shouldn't have committed himself to play DC though.
