I'm sure Andy is doing right thing.  Has there been any criticism in the media?  In the papers I read it was just a straight brief report from PA without any comment.  But don't know about the rest of you, I'm getting withdrawal symptoms already.  Seems like a long time till Dubai and even longer till US hard court season.

I've looked online at the Scotsman, Herald, Guardian, Telegraph, Record and Mirror - a fair cross-section that! - and nobody is criticising Andy, although the Herald, typically, manages to get in a little dig saying that team GB will be "severely diminished" without him.  Fortunately there is emphasis in all these papers on the fact that this is going to be a tough year for him, especially with the Olympics coming up.

Here's a link to the Scotsman article which goes into Andy's absence and the players picked for the tie at some length - and is the only newspaper to point out that
Murray had voiced doubts about his participation this time around because of the changes made to the calendar to accommodate the Olympics, with the Davis Cup weeks brought forward from the usual March and July to February and April.
which, in all fairness he did say a while ago.

Andy still at work. A tweet from Maggie May entitled 'Who's the daddy?'

Think its a stunning picture, the contrast with the AO couldn't be bigger; no crowd, no heath, no pressure...the crop, and the boots of course...

Must admit my first thought was that he's bossing the dogs, as opposed to Lendl bossing him!

Aileen i've  got withdrawal symtons too. But lets think in a different way, lets all think of the mouth watering prospect of seeing this new Andy under the guidance of Lendl mature and develop, and the pulsating matches we will all have the pleasure of watching him play in later on this year. Lets not forget most of the effort in Australia was down to Andy, the new found aggression, the calmness both off and on court. At this point in time i believe the Lendl effect was minimal. With plenty of time to now settle down and work more closely with his new coach, where will his game be in say 6 months time? I can't even begin to think about it. So i say good for him that he's taking a rest, indirectly gives the others a chance to shine. Andy i for one am so proud of you. Apparently you've gained a new legion of fans world wide as a result of your exploits down under?

His brand of funky Junk tennis has never looked more brilliant  cmon yeah

I'm not bothered about the Davis Cup to be honest, although I do feel very sorry for those who have tickets and who had hoped to see Andy - but, hey! ... there are other players who're going to need all the support they can get!  Also Andy has said he'll play later in the year if necessary.  He hasn't entirely deserted the DC.

Like you and everyone else on this forum I can't wait to see how this relationship with Lendl will work out over the coming months, and I'm hugely impressed that a start has been made with regard to Andy's behaviour and mental approach, and that in such a short space of time.  Now that this has been achieved, the tennis will surely follow.

I quite agree, I think Andy will really improve. He firstly respects Lendl which is very importan t, and on we go. He has made a huge start with Andy it is amazing, I am so excited. A Grand Salem is looming.

Thanks Aileen for your media round up at 12.32pm and for the link [see I'm learning!].  Glad that Andy hasn't been getting stick for what is a sensible decision.  Like everyone else I realise we need to be patient and look forward to what could well be Andy's best year yet given the way it started.  I do feel optimistic given what we saw in Oz.  But it does sometimes feel as if each time Andy raises his game so the bar is raised even higher in terms of what is needed to win a GS in this era.

That's lovely P.T, I too think lendl got a lot of the praise for Andy when I fact Andy was starting to do all the right things just before they started working, but I am sure he has helped enormously and will continue to do so. We have much to be happy about. yay

Playing at Braehead last time we saw an emotional Andy enjoying being home and the team camaraderie. It seemed to be important to him and although I seem to be very much in the minority, I actually think it is pretty selfish to let down the team, his country and more importantly all the fans who gave him such a hero's welcome last time. It is after all three perhaps only two games of tennis, unlikely to be very demanding and just a couple of days out of his schedule. He is apparently going to be in Scotland anyway at some publicity event. Everyone knows that the Scottish venue was repeated to try and ensure Andy played and I think a lot less of him for not stepping up, I really do. I don't like when he behaves like Federer etc and says I am too big and important for this little event - I want Andy to be different like when he takes such care to sign all the autographs. I'm afraid I don't think he is injured any more than Nadal was at the Oz Open.
