Murray set to miss Davis Cup quar­ters

The Herald - Herald Sport - - CRICKET -

ANDY MURRAY’S el­bow in­jury is set to keep him out of the Davis Cup quar­ter-fi­nal tie with France next week, ac­cord­ing to brother Jamie.

The world No.1 was forced to with­draw from the Miami Open af­ter suf­fer­ing the in­jury prac­tis­ing for the event and re­turned to Bri­tain last week where a scan re­vealed the dam­age.

Jamie re­vealed Andy has torn part of his right el­bow and his par­tic­i­pa­tion in the clash in Rouen, which be­gins a week on Fri­day, now ap­pears un­likely.

Jamie said: “It’s some sort of tear in his el­bow, so he needs to rest.

“He said he can do ev­ery­thing ex­cept serve and he told me that rest was all he had to do. I am not plan­ning that he is go­ing be there [against France] but, if he is, then ob­vi­ously that is great for the team.

“He has had shin­gles, he has had his el­bow, he was sick here as well for two or three days af­ter he pulled out of the tour­na­ment.

“I think he just needs to get a bit set­tled and get a good crack at it over the next three months be­cause there are a lot of big tour­na­ments to play.”
