LTA trainer Downey pronounced in a matter on Tuesday: “We value a opinions of all of a players on how we grow a diversion in Britain and a doorway is always open to Andy, Dan [Evans], Dom [Inglot], James [Ward], Jamie [Murray] and Kyle [Edmund] to hear their views and work collaboratively with them and all of a partners.”

Murray criticised British tennis’ ruling physique after moving his country’s initial Davis Cup win in 79 years opposite Belgium in Ghent over a weekend.

The 28-year-old pronounced he “did not know where a subsequent era are” and that on a revisit to a National Tennis Centre (NTC) in Oct he found “not one chairman regulating any of a indoor courts and not one chairman in a gym”.

Lloyd, 67, who accused Murray of not putting adequate back into a British diversion before a Davis Cup final, pronounced it is “fantastic” that a Scot spoke out as he has “enormous energy in determining a approach a diversion should be run”.

Speaking about a approach a LTA is run, Lloyd added: “Someone contingency take a blame. Bob Brett was hired [as executive of actor development] and afterwards left within a year, not given he wasn’t good though he was in a wrong job. They hired him for a pursuit that he can’t do.

“You’ve got to put people in a right positions if you’re using a company. The sire has to stop during a arch executive’s door. He has finished a bad job.”

Lloyd, who says he twice practical for a LTA arch executive pursuit though was incited down on both occasions, believes a ruling physique squanders a annual appropriation it receives from increase generated by a Wimbledon championship.

“We get over £30m a year given to us giveaway of assign from a All England Club, that is a best contest in a world, though we have a really bad standard. It doesn’t make sense,” he said.

“Andy Murray is a good actor though we have no juniors entrance through. We have no system.”

Meanwhile, former British women’s series one Anne Keothavong told BBC Radio 5 live that a people using a LTA did not “share a passion” of a Murray family and “so many other people” in British tennis.

Keothavong pronounced that after timid dual and a half years ago, she offering to proffer during a NTC in Roehampton though had usually been contacted once given then, that she described as “ridiculous”.

She added: “You’ve got to make a many of a people who are ardent about a game. There are so many people in British tennis who wish to give back, who wish to do a lot of things, though maybe they’re seen as threats.”
