ANDY Murray said yesterday it would be "a great thrill" if he could partner his brother, Jamie, in next year's Davis Cup. The British No3 admitted that it might take another year for his older sibling to break into the team, but would not rule out the prospect of Team Murray playing in the tie scheduled for Braehead Arena in April.
I definitely think it's a possibility. He's had a lot of good results in doubles recently and I think he really impressed a lot of people in Aberdeen. I think 2007 might be a bit more realistic, but yeah, of course, playing Davis Cup with your brother for your country would be a great thrill.
GB Davis Cup captain, Jeremy Bates, said:
I have been very impressed with Jamie. He has an unorthodox game that can give a lot of people trouble. I think he played great in Aberdeen and he has a natural chemistry with his brother.
With Tim Henman retired from Davis Cup duty, Rusedski and the younger Murray will be Britain's principal singles players in next year's tournament.
