Murray shocked about Murray

Jamie Murray criticised his younger brother Andy for pulling out of the Davis Cup rubber against Argentina in Buenos Aires. The british number one withdrew explaining he has concerns about the condition of his knee. The doubles specialist was shocked about his younger brother's decision.

"It kind of affects the way we feel about him," Jamie said. "I think it's disappointing he chose not to come.

"From what I have been reading he hasn't come out and said he's injured, it's more a prevention thing. I think if he had really wanted to push himself he could have come here for the match.
It was a shock for me and for the team. I was not aware he had a problem.

"From his point of view, I guess he doesn't have anything to apologise for as he's taken the decision not to come. If he had come here, he would have caused them problems because he has the ability to win singles matches, he's a world-class player. He's been in the top 10 and not by fluke. I think he would have liked to come here and had the crowd against him, he plays better in those circumstances."

The british team is now left with Alex Bogdanovic, who's number 188 in the world. This pretty much leaves the Britains standing without any chance against the argentinian armada lead by world No.9 David Nalbandian.
