Injured Andy Murray has been left out of the Davis Cup team for the quarter final verses France. The tennis World Number one has been forced to take some time out as he recovers from his elbow injury.
The twenty nine year old tennis ace had to forgo his place in the Miami Open because of the injury to his elbow. It was merely a week before the tournament in Florida was due to begin, when Murray made the announcement of his absence.
Leon Smith, current Captain of the Great Britain Davis Cup team, admitted that Andy Murray’s absence would certainly be felt. He stated that it would be a big loss to team GB, as well as to Andy who wouldn’t want to miss out on the chance to play. However, the quarter final isn’t lost yet! His captain and team wish him well and hope that he has a speedy recovery.
This April Jamie Murray will face the French team without his doubles partner and brother. Dan Evans, Kyle Edmund and Dom Inglot will join him to make up team GB. Fans can look forward to the quarter final that is due to start on April 7th.
Murray will rest his injury indefinitely, no date has been specified for him to return to practice. The likelihood is that he will want to be fully fit before he even thinks about picking up a racket again. If he returns to his game before he is fully fit he will risk his current ranking and his prospect of success in the remaining season.
He is still scheduled to play in Monte Carlo in three weeks, at which time it is hoped that he will be fully fit and back on form.
