    According to Simon Briggs in the Telegraph article above, Andy not returning before Madrid is "the talk in the Miami locker room" in other words pure speculation.

    Daily Mail - Andy Murray to face Roger Federer in 'Match for Africa' the day after Great Britain's Davis Cup quarter-final clash with France in April

    If he appears on court in Zurich immediately after a likely defeat for Britain in his absence, it presents a slightly awkward dilemma for Murray
    No it doesn't but it won't stop the haters hating.

    This is worth a read. Looking at why there are so many injuries in top level tennis players.

    Hackle raising time.

    Daily Mail - Virginia Wade 40 years on from her Wimbledon triumph: Andy Murray needed to grow up... and Maria Sharapova is stuck up
    'What Andy did after 77 years was fantastic,' she says.
    'The only thing that upset me a little bit was he took 77 as his number and my most memorable year was '77, and he named his management company after it.
    'I sort of feel 77 was my number as well. So there was a bit of plagiarism there, but he has done so well.'
    After retirement Wade became one of the more perspicacious TV analysts. Among her noted pronouncements came at the 2012 French Open when she suggested Murray, not known at the time for underplaying injuries, may have looked like a drama queen in a match when he suffered a stiff back.

    'One day I will have to say to him that I think in many ways I was a catalyst for his improvement. It wasn't that I said it, but that everyone jumped on the bandwagon and publicised it. The way I said it was actually quite discreet. He said he was disappointed in me because people don't understand how I'm feeling on the court, all of which is true if you want to make yourself feel sorry for yourself. I knew the feeling exactly because for so many years I made excuses. If you look back, had I been a grown up much earlier I'm sure I could have won more. Of course Lendl made a big difference to Andy. He might have got away with abusing his inner circle but you can't abuse Lendl.'
    Pointless in reminding Ginny that the following year Andy required back surgery and since then rarely clutches his back. The pain was real.

    She comes over as am embittered pillock to me. Sir A, has stolen her limelight. She is also probably bitter that he has got a "K", and she only got an OBE.

    She won in 1977, whereas it was 77 years since the last male british winner. No connection at all, unless you are looking for something to be offended about.

    BTW has she retired from commenting? I haven't heard her dulcet tones for ages.

    I think you might mean commentating? Although after her comments maybe she should retire from commenting. .

    Hey should I send the red 77 Tees back and ask them to add N O T V. Wade under the Andy Murray

    Just maybe she could have just said "Great things seem to happen in GB tennis around the number 77" and left it at that?
    It's as if she feels she has the right to the 77 bit at Wimby. Well not any more!

    Andy was able to incorporate 77 with his initials of AM, it looks as if VW doesn't realise that VW will not work with 77.
    All she is doing is making herself look stupid as well as being embittered.

    Because with AM reaching number one, and getting his knighthood she is feeling the lack of attention. She was horrible about his back, and with the Fed worship she is doomed in my eyes.
