Murrays' mom disappointed at non-inclusion of tennis for 2014 CW Games

British No.1 Andy Murrays mother, Judy, is disappointed that tennis will not be included in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.


London, Sep 27 : British No.1 Andy Murray's mother, Judy, is disappointed that tennis will not be included in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The mother of tennis players Andy and Jamie Murray was speaking at the opening of new miniature courts for young children in Colinton, Edinburgh.

She said the lack of facilities in Scotland, particularly indoor courts for winter, which Commonwealth Games funding would have helped.

"It was a good opportunity for quite a number of medals in four years' time. The selection (of which sports to include] is up to the Commonwealth Games board. They will have had their reasons, but for tennis it's unfortunate," she said.

"It's a huge opportunity for tennis in Scotland to grow, but we need activities, coaches, organisers and enthusiastic parents. Because the weather is so bad we need huge investment in indoor facilities - we still have just six in the whole of Scotland," The Scotsman quoted her, as saying.

The two new courts in Colinton cost 20,000 pounds, are just 11 metres by five, and the only ones of their kind in the east of Scotland.

Jamie Murray was preparing yesterday to fly out to the ommonwealth Games in Delhi, which have been dogged with ontroversy.

Judy Murray said: "He's a little bit apprehensive. Other athletes have already left and he will get feedback from them. Tennis has an existing club (in Delhi] so there's no problem with tennis facilities. It's the village, making sure it's secure and hygienic."
