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.
