Judy Murray wants her son Andy to captain GB women’s Fed Cup team – Tennis News
Briton number one, Andy Murray’s mom wants her son to lead the Great Britain team at Fed Cup tournament, next year. Judy Murray is constantly in contact with the Lawn Tennis Association officials to make a deal about his son’s
leadership of Britain’s team at 2012 Fed Cup. Andy Murray will probably be the right choice for the captainship of the Britain’s team but it’s not about leading the field of tennis; a good player is not bound to be an impressive leader as well.
LTA is looking for the right person on that captain’s post ever since Nigel Sears resigned. He was the captain as well as head of women’s tennis in LTA but he recently retired and took over the duty of coaching one of the most
gorgeous tennis stars, Ana Ivanovic. Murray’s mother wants her son to occupy that post but it requires an in-depth analysis about world number four’s ability to become the head at LTA. The decision will definitely take time.
Leon Smith was earlier announced the head of Women’s Tennis Association in October, 2011 but the seat for the captain’s duty still remains vacant with several names being put forth in front of LTA. Smith can’t be appointed as the
captain as well because he is already associated with the coaching of men’s tennis and head of Davis Cup captain so it will be cruel to bond him with yet another duty.
Officials of LTA are very passionate of putting Murray’s experience to use by providing him with an opportunity to lead the team at Fed Cup. He will be associated with the training of youngsters but the decision is yet to be finalized.
Women team of Great Britain still have enough time to prepare for the Fed Cup tie so officials are in no hurry to make any sort of decision.
Great Britain women team for Fed Cup consist of some big names like Elena Baltacha, Anne Keothavong, Heather Watson and Laura Robson and they will square-off in Group I teams of Europe/Africa zone. The progress of Briton women
players was very impressive this year and they are expected reach the world group and excite the fans with their performances.
The competition is very tough at the moment and round-robin stage will feature 15 teams and only two of them will proceed to the next stage that leaves no chance for any player to have any sort of slipups. Murray has worked with
LTA and helped youngsters to groom. His efforts will be kept in mind while making any sort of decision.
