Great Britain’s chances at this year’s Davis Cup took a big hit when their strongest singles player, Andy Murray, decided to skip the tie lest he aggravate a knee injury that crept in during off-season training. This has left relations with his brother, doubles specialist Jamie Murray, on hold. “I haven’t spoken to him at all, or sent him a text message,” Jamie told the press. “There isn’t really much to say. […] I think it’s kind of up to him to clear the air.”
Meanwhile, what could have been a potentially competitive tie will now be a 5-0 blowout. You know Argentines are happy about that.
That’s Jose Acasuso, David Nalbandian, Agustin Calleri, Sebastian Prieto (subbing for the injured Juan Monaco, and captain Alberto Mancini.
We’ve always liked the warmups from these guys, and this year is no different. A varsity font brings a youthful energy to their jacket, while the oh-so-trendy vertical stripes keep things retro. BTW, the new design is courtesy of Fila, a recent mover and shaker in the Latin American sports apparel industry.
Help! My Spanish is pathetic (that, and I am boozy right now), so I am having a hard time tracking down a site that sells official Argentina Davis Cup gear. Does anyone have info on this?
