    BBC - Andy Murray named in Great Britain's Davis Cup team

    htt ps://

    Andy Murray has returned to Great Britain's Davis Cup team for the fixtures against Australia, France and Switzerland in Manchester next month.

    The three-time Grand Slam champion was left out of the squad for the 3-1 win against Colombia in February.

    Murray, 36, was integral to Britain's 2015 victory - their first Davis Cup win in 79 years.

    The top two nations in Group B in Manchester qualify for November's finals in Malaga.

    All of GB's ties will be broadcast on BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website and app.

    Neal Skupski, Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans have also been selected for the 10-time champions who were eliminated in the group stages of last year's Finals.

    "It's been a long time since we played in the North West and I'm sure we are going to feel and hear a lot of energy from the fans," GB captain Leon Smith said.

    "We have a great team with a lot of Davis Cup experience who will be ready to give it everything in a tough group."

    Russell Fuller, BBC tennis correspondent

    With Evans and Murray in the team, captain Smith has calculated he is only likely to require the services of one specialist doubles player.

    As the Wimbledon champion and world number one, Skupski fits the bill perfectly, and was a finalist at both the Miami and Monte Carlo Masters with Evans in 2021.

    The team could still evolve over the month ahead, as Smith can make up to three changes until 24 hours before the start.

    Performances at the US Open will be a factor, and the progress of Jack Draper will be closely watched. The 21-year-old, who has not played since the French Open, makes his comeback from a shoulder injury at the Winnipeg Challenger this week.

    US Open 2023: Andy Murray 'playing best’ since hip operation

    BBC - ht tps://


    "I'm at my highest ranking (37) since I had my metal hip put in," Murray said.

    "I'm happy with that. It's not been an easy journey. I would like to be ranked higher but this is the best I've played consistently since 2017."


    "I've played quite a lot of matches against ex-coaches - I think I've only lost once," said the three-time major champion, who won his maiden Grand Slam title in New York in 2012.

    "I mean, it probably should be a big advantage for him to have two guys that have worked with me over the years. But we'll find out."

    Emma Raducanu: British star says 'provoking' questions have contributed to turnover of coaches


    "I ask my coaches a lot of questions," she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

    "On certain occasions they haven't been able to keep up with the questions I've asked and maybe that's why it ended."


    "I will be coming back with probably a lower ranking, but I'm actually looking forward to starting again, kind of resetting," she told Karthi Gnanasegaram.

    "I still have new goals, new things I want to achieve. But I've still got like 15 years left in my career, so there's no rush."

    Raducanu also has an ambition to represent Great Britain at the Olympics, although Paris 2024 might come too soon.

    "Obviously, the Olympics is such a big thing in sport," she said.

    "I think I could play another four if I really wanted to, so this one isn't the immediate rush or pressure, it's just about getting back on court.

    "I love the Slams but I do want to have the Olympic experience. I'll just see how it goes, if I even qualify and how it goes from there."


    "Overall, I'm a lot better, I just feel like it's part of my day now and part of my life. It's not just tennis and fitness, it's the other commercial side as well and that's totally ok," added Raducanu.

    "You have to think ahead about your life after your career is over and I think a lot of successful athletes would have said 'I wish maybe when I was younger I did think ahead a bit'.

    "I think I have a lot of bandwidth, knowledge, learning and time, so I'm just curious about everything and every different world I can get into. But at the end of the day, tennis and training is my priority."
