A groin strain put Andy Murray out

Overnight there had been much speculation as to whether Andy Murray would team up with his brother but as Day Two dawned, the younger brother had to call in sick. A slight groin strain picked up a couple of days before was still bothering him and with the reverse singles yet to come, Andy left doubles duty to his brother and Hutchins.

Does this happen often, when the U.K. plays Davis Cup "at home," --at Wimbledon? :retard:

It took Andy 1:47 to make it 1-1. I would play him in doubles.

This could be a great tie. Day 1 should finish 1-1.

Depending on how quickly Andy dispatches Peya, I can still see Andy playing in the doubles. The doubles is a must win rubber for GB because if Andy gets up against Melzer then you don't want the tie resting on Boggo.

in a weird way i think boggo has a better chance vs melzer 1st day rubber than peya in a deciding 5th. he wont be under extreme pressure vs melzer and was a set up to him on grass a few years back at newport. although if melzer plays like he did at the uso then boggo has no chance.
if boggo feels good he can play well on grass (as seen by the match vs roddick last year) and maybe if murray plays 1st and wins melzer will be under a bit of pressure.

Don't know whether Lloydy is trying to play games or anything (most likely not), but he has already stated who he'd prefer to play on Saturday...Murray/Murray. In the grand scheme of things, I don't think it really matters...we rely heavily on Andy, while Austria rely heavily on Melzer. Both will play 3 rubbers barring injury/serious fatigue.

The problem with Boggo is that he doesn't have the balls...he has the talent, and is capable of getting some half-decent results, but when it actually matters, he is unable to produce the goods. But in a potential live 5th rubber with Peya, I don't know how much all this really matters...not like Peya has been a world-beater, himself.
