He has a week's break between Cincy and the US, then a 2 week break between Davis Cup and Bangkok, so its basically


Emmm....he hasn't a 2 week break between Davis cup and Bangkok. Davis cup ends 15 sept Bangkok starts 23 sept.

and it's not just about breaks, it's about change of surface to the surface that he has most problems with physically + a lot of changing time zones.  Not physically demanding?  Come off it.

oh and big nose if you're implying that Andy is lying about his back problem then you really shouldn't be a member of this forum

Courage doesn't always roar - but wins Wimbledon

I honestly don't know what to think about DC. A big part of me still thinks Andy should not play, because ultimately, what is the point? Until we have another singles player of Andy's calibre, we're not going to win the DC anyway, so maybe he should focus on himself and his career.

Another part of me feels that maybe Andy just wants to play, to be part of the team, as our top player. I suppose just having Andy there is good for the team really, so I can get why he would want to play.

I just hope Andy is sensible about it. If there is any chance his back might be an issue he shouldn't play, but maybe Andy has already sought advice and guidance on the subject too.

Guys the harsh reality is that Andy might not even make the Final this year, so lets not get ahead of ourselves. Besides if he does make the Final no one but Andy knows what's for him. He is 26, not 7, he doesn't need molly coddling,  he will do what's right for himself and I see nothing wrong with him playing if he feels psyically and mentally sound.

I don't know about that, I think with Andy we could be a decent enough team. He'll win almost every match he plays and we have three top 40 doubles players, so we should compete against most doubles teams. Unless we're up against a country with genuine doubles specialists (e.g. the US) I'd give us a chance.

Some of the teams in the World Group don't have any genuinely top class players, far less two - Brazil, Kazakhstan, Belgium, etc.

Andy was well aware of the closeness of the DC tie to the USO when he made that commitment,  so he knows what could be involved.  My only concern, which I expressed earlier, is how his dodgy back might stand up to the sudden change in surface, especially as it's clay.  I'd hate to see him ruin his chances in the Far East or even beyond just for the sake of playing a tie we could very well lose.  It could be Poland 2009 all over again.

Yes but he didn't know it would be played on clay Aileen or that his back would go again playing on clay in the Spring - that's the main issue for me.

I'm sure we don't need to worry as Andy and Lendl will not take any chances and Leon Smith will not put any pressure on Andy to play in the DC.

This is why I think unwise for players to commit themselves to tournaments, or DC ties, months before they actually take place.

Andy Murray's Wimbledon final kit on display at Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum

If you were unable to get tickets to see Andy Murray play in the Wimbledon final this year, fear not.

The Wimbledon champion has donated his winning kit to the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, so fans can still see a piece of tennis history for themselves.

The world number two’s kit will be displayed in the 2013 Championships showcase, along with his autographed shirt, ankle braces, shorts and tennis shoes.

Ashley Jones, commercial manager of Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, said: “We are thrilled to share this unique piece of British Tennis History, thanks to Murray’s wonderful donation.

“The display doesn’t fail to conjure up emotions, taking you back to the celebrated moment history was made – we’re delighted we can extend this stirring experience to visitors the world over. It is truly a winning display.”

Also in the showcase are the outfits worn in the Wimbledon women’s final by champion Marion Bartoli and Sabine Lisicki.

For those who want to see where Murray won the championship match, the Blue Badge Guide Tour of the Wimbledon grounds shows you were all the action happened as well as a glimpse behind the scenes.

I was very pleased to see that BBC2 showed "The man behind the racquet" tonight with sign language - and of course I watched it again!
