Amid the obvious disappointment of Britain's 3-2 defeat by Austria in their Davis Cup world group qualifying tie at the weekend there was also room for a little much needed optimism, with Andrew Murray, the 17-year-old Scot who won the US Open junior title at Flushing Meadows earlier this month, clearly impressing both Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski.

"Andrew needs to get into the top 200 and that will probably take two years, but he's got the right attitude and I think he's got a good future. Apart from on the golf course, where he's a bandit. He says he's an 18 handicap which is the same as me, but I don't think so," said Rusedski.

Murray was invited along to the tie against Luxembourg earlier in the year to get some experience of the Davis Cup atmosphere, while in Austria he was a bone fide, but non-playing, member of the four-man team.
