Any doubts concerning the state of Andy Murray's left ankle, and his involvement next week in Britain's Davis Cup tie against Serbia and Montenegro, in Glasgow, all but disappeared yesterday.
The Scottish teenager, who underwent a scan on the ankle to evaluate his fitness, felt no pain after practising "flat out" for an hour at London's Queen's Club.
The 18-year-old Scot had sprained his ankle in his opening-round defeat to Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka in Miami, at the Nasdaq-100 Open last Wednesday, and in his post-match interviews he had said he might be forced to withdraw from the Euro-African Zone tie, a week today at Glasgow's Braehead Arena.
Murray had the ankle scanned at the New Victoria Hospital, in Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, yesterday lunchtime, and in the afternoon he practised for an hour at Queen's Club with his Davis Cup team-mate Arvind Parmar.
It is understood Murray was told of the full results of the scan late last night.
