Davis Cup: Andy Murray Named to the Great Britain Team

Great Britain’s Davis Cup team has been announced and Andy Murray is on the list for the first time since 2019.

He joins team members, Daniel Evans and Cameron Norrie. Joe Salisbury is also on there. However, Jack Draper will be missing out on the event.

The former world no.1 has slowly been trying to regain some of his post-injury glory on his way to the US Open.

“It’s always special playing in a Davis Cup tie in front of a home crowd,” Murray said.

“Some of the best moments of my career have come representing my country in the Davis Cup, so to be a part of the team again means a lot.”

“Obviously it’s exciting that the competition is returning to Glasgow - we’ve had some brilliant results there in the past, and this is another chance for us to create even more history,” Murray said.

“We’ve got a strong team and we’ll be giving everything we can to get the win for the fans and book our place in the finals.”

The team will be led by Norrie and they will face the US, Kazakhstan, and the Netherlands early in the event.

“Coming into a Davis Cup as the British number one - it doesn’t get much better than that,” Norrie said.

“Having Andy in the team of course is a real boost. Both him and Dan were here in 2015 when we went on to win the competition and having that experience is really important, but it also drives the rest of us to get there as well.”

Leon Smith, Davis Cup Team Captain, said that the selection was tough. They had to cut out rising star Draper who sits eight spots below Murray. But Smith did confirm that they will be adding a fifth player to the roster, giving Draper a chance.
