a distant memory when we resume from wff's blog

Andy Murray admits he wants to make his new daughter proud as he returns to action for Great Britain in the Davis Cup. The British No 1 played a leading role in last years triumphant Davis Cup campaign, culminating in a final win over Belgium in November, the first since 1936.On Friday, the defending champions will take on Japan in the first round, and Murray has made himself available to GB skipper Leon Smith following the birth of his first child earlier this month. Novak Djokovic, the dominant world No 1, has admitted that fatherhood has given him added motivation and two-time Grand Slam winner Murray has suggested he could be spurred on to achieve more success. The outcome of a match is not everything but I want my daughter to be proud of her dad when she grows up and sees what I did. Andy Murray Murray told The Guardian: For other players, it hasnt worked out as well. But fatherhood is a positive thing - and tennis not being your priority can help. It lends perspective when you have a bad loss or bad practice.The outcome of a match is not everything but I want my daughter to be proud of her dad when she grows up and sees what I did. I hope it works out in a positive way on the court but if it doesnt, its not the end of the world.The world No 2 has not played a competitive match since losing the Australian Open final to Novak Djokovic in January. The Scot was denied another Grand Slam title by Novak Djokovic in January Murray is relishing the challenge of representing Britain again, but is wary of the threat posed by Japan, who include world No 6 Kei Nishikori. No. I always wanted to play providing everything went well with Kim and the baby. Its going to be a tough tie. Last year, the toughest team we played was France and they didnt have anyone ranked as high as Nishikori. Hes capable of winning two singles. Djokovic and Murray could renew their rivalry in America Despite nine defeats to Djokovic in their last 10 matches, Murray is reading little into this daunting record and the pair could go head-to-head in next months hardcourt tournament in Indian Wells, live on Sky Sports.I dont look as much into that as everyone else, said Murray. Look at Stan Wawrinka, winning his second slam (the French Open) against Novak. Hed lost to him 13 times in a row. I dont think hed ever beaten Rafael Nadal when Stan won Australia in 2014.Each time you step on to the court, its a completely new match. The reason Novaks beaten me a lot recently is that hes been the better player. But if I play him tomorrow, its a bit like roulette.People think there have been five reds in a row. Its got to be black next time - but the roulette wheel doesnt know whats happened before. Also See: GBs route to Davis Cup glory From zeroes to heroes ATP schedule Tennis on Sky Brent Suter Jersey.

Throughout the Tour de France, Australian professional cyclist Richie Porte will be checking in. Here is his latest entry, as told to ESPN contributor Rupert Guinness:Rest day: Berne, SwitzerlandIt was a day where riding your bike cannot get better: Tuesdays second rest day of the Tour de France. We know that from Wednesday on, the days will immediately return to being a punish with the next four stages being in the Alps. So Tuesday was one to appreciate.And that I did, from the moment I got up at 7.30am to when I turned the lights out at night. After breakfast, I went on my rest day ride with my French teammate Ama?l Moinard.We just rolled easy for 47km by the shores of Lake Thun -- what a beautiful lake it is too. When you are racing flat out, especially in the Tour, you dont really get to take in the surroundings, even thought they are often some of Europes most picturesque regions.Today, Tuesday, was one of the rare occasions where you can, while also riding our bikes. For Ama?l and I it was also a nice opportunity to catch up with some quiet and relaxed chat away from the bells and whistles -- and the ever present madness -- of the Tour de France.We spoke about the next four days in the Alps: how we see them unfold, who is looking good and all the difference scenarios of which there are many before Sundays finish.We also chatted about our plans for after the Tour. We have vastly different plans too. I will be heading to Rio for the Olympic Games, whereas Ama?l will be returning home to Saint Laurent du Var near Nice and some family time his wife, Morgane, andd children live.ddddddddddddBut with four successive days in the Alps of the Tour in mind, we didnt forget the job at hand. We still have to focus on the job that awaits this week, and recovery for that was vital.We got back from our ride at about 11.30, in time to see the osteopath, have lunch, then a massage, a nap and then the rest of the day with my wife Gemma who arrived on Monday. It all sounds like a slow day, but trust me, it goes by too quickly -- as most good things do.And as I said, it will all seem like a distant memory when we resume racing on Wednesday with the first Alpine stage -- all of it in Switzerland -- from Berne to Finhaut-Emosson. Our minds will have already switched back to race mode by breakfast. We all realise the value of every opportunity between now and the end of the last Alpine stage on Saturday.Are there any vulnerabilities in Sky and Chris Froome who still leads the Tour overall? Of course there are. They exist in the however many hundred kilometres there are to go in the Tour. Unforseen thing can happen. The Tour is not over. I certainly dont see it that way.I dont expect any of the other top contenders see it that way either -- from Froome down. We have all seen -- or experienced -- how the tide can turn for or against you in a grand tour.To be complacent, which I am sure Froome wont be despite his strong position, is to commit a massive error; just as to surrender because of the odds are against you.
