THE LOW DOWN: Andy Murray hits back at brother, "[The comments were] a little bit disappointing," says Andy


Family feud: Andy Murray isn't happy with the public spanking he got from big brother Jamie. The British No. 1, who just reached the quarterfinals in Marseille, defended his decision to skip his country's Davis Cup tie in Argentina to rest his tender knee.

After his first round win in Marseille this week, the 20-year old told the press,

"[The comments were] a little bit disappointing” [...] "He obviously felt pretty strongly about it and he’s entitled to his opinion. Again, if he knew what it was like playing three five-set matches in a row on clay, then maybe he would understand my position a bit better."
The World No. 11 also revealed the Scottish siblings have yet to discuss the controversy saying,
"I’ve not spoken to him yet. I’ll see him soon. I guess we’ll have to have a chat about it and just sort out our feelings on Davis Cup and the sort of position that I am in, but it’s probably not going to be the most fun conversation to have with your brother. [...] If people want to say that I am not committed to playing for my country and don’t put 110 per cent in, then I think that’s pretty unfair.”
Though he adamantly stands by his decision, Andy felt the need to reassure British Davis Cup captain John Lloyd that he'll absolutely be available for the next tie. We'll see.
