"Ready to give it everything": Andy Murray set to return to Great Britain's Davis Cup team for Finals Group Stage next month

Andy Murray is set to join Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans, and Neal Skupski as part of Great Britain's Davis Cup team in Manchester next month.

Former world No. 1 Murray was an essential player in Britain's Davis Cup victory in 2015, ending a wait of almost 80 years.

However, the three-time Grand Slam champion was absent from the team's clay-court qualifying win in Colombia last February. The team captain Leon Smith said this was because the Scot did not have a great record on clay, having played only three matches on the surface since 2017.

The British team will be up against Australia, France, and Switzerland in Group B of the Davis Cup, from September 12-17. Only two of the four nations will advance to the quarter-final in November.

Smith expressed the team's excitement at playing in front of a home crowd.

"We can’t wait to play Davis Cup in Manchester in front of a huge home crowd," Smith said, "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."
