Murray's magical year - February
Great Britain Davis Cup captain John Lloyd with Ross Hutchins and Jamie Murray (top); Andy Murray wins in Marseille (bottom)

Murray courts controversy by pulling out of Great Britain's Davis Cup tie in Argentina to protect his troublesome knee, leaving captain John Lloyd (top left) without his only world-class player.

But the British number one feels vindicated when he heads to Marseille the following week and wins the fifth title of his career.

Jamie Murray: "It's a shame that he decided that it was best for him not to come here. It kind of affects the way I feel about him. It's disappointing that he chose not to come.

"I think from what I've heard he hasn't actually said that he was injured, it was more of a preventative thing. If he really wanted to push himself, he really could have come here to play the tie."

Andy Murray: "I know it was the right decision and I think I proved it by winning the tournament."

February 29th ranking - 12
