  • Murray set to abandon Britain to its Davis Cup fate

    Murray set to abandon Britain to its Davis Cup fate Andy Murray is almost certain to abandon Britain to its Davis Cup fate in 2010 after his effort playing on a bad wrist failed to lift the nation from the depths of the world team competition.

    The world No. 3, now more concerned about bridging the gap on the ATP between himself and Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, will be unlikely to risk in sub-European zone play on a team where he is the lone talent.

    The British will have to go it alone without the Scot in March away against Lithuania. The opposition has just three singles players inside the top 1,000, No. 432 Ricardas Berankis being the best of that bunch.

    British captain John Lloyd, his own job reportedly in the sights of former player Greg Rusedski, is playing up the positive after his pitiful side suffered a fourth straight loss with a defeat at the weekend by Poland.

    "Playing in Group Two will give some of our younger players the opportunity to perform on the international stage and gain valuable experience at that level. They will learn to play in that environment and they will learn to win. The team is now looking forward to moving up the groups".
