Murray's foot fault mars homecoming

Quote

Andy Murray's dramatically unexpected proclamation of lingering problems with ankle ligaments has pitched into chaos the battle plans of Britain's captain, Jeremy Bates, for the Davis Cup Euro/African Zone tie against Serbia and Montenegro this week. Will Murray be fit enough to play in an event specially located in Scotland because of his expected participation? We shall not know, says the lad himself, until Wednesday, less than 48 hours before he is due to be in action on the opening day at the long-ago sold-out Braehead Arena near Glasgow.

Having suffered further damage in his first-round match at the Masters Series event in Miami 10 days ago to an ankle he first injured last summer, Murray must be a serious doubt. Following the scan at Surrey's Kingston Hospital on Thursday, the 18-year-old British No 1 practised at the LTA headquarters at Queen's Club where, according to a witness, "he had a hit but didn't do any running at all".

This is not looking good at all.  I know I'm being selfish, but what a waste of time and money this is going to be if Andy's not playing.  Wish I'd only bought a two day ticket now....and... I wish the media would stop saying he's fit when he clearly isn't.  Seems to me Andy knew right after Miami and he wouldn't play in this tournament.  Ah well, it's his future fitness that's important I guess... but can't help feeling gutted at this moment in time.  Crying or Very sad Frown
