Grand Slam champion Andy Murray returns to Britain’s Davis Cup squad.
The Lawn Tennis Association announced on Monday that Andy Murray would be a member of the British side competing in the Davis Cup Finals group stage in mid-September. Murray has won three Grand Slam titles.
With a fifth member to be recruited later, the British team will consist of Murray, world No. 11 Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans, and Joe Salisbury.
In Group D of the competition, the United Kingdom will compete against the United States, Kazakhstan, and the Netherlands.
Games are set to take place in Glasgow’s Emirates Arena from September 13 to September 18.
Murray last participated in the tournament in 2019, defeating Dutchman Tallon Griekspoor. In 2015, Murray helped lead Britain to their first Davis Cup victory in 79 years.
The 35-year-old, who recently lost his opening matches at the Canadian Masters and Citi Open and withdrew from Wimbledon in the second round, came in second in the ATP 250 tournament in Stuttgart in June.
It means a lot to Murray, who will play Stan Wawrinka at the Cincinnati Open later on Monday, to be a part of the squad again. “Some of the finest moments of my career have come serving my nation in the Davis Cup,” said Murray.
“It’s thrilling that the tournament is coming to Glasgow; we’ve had some fantastic successes there in the past, and this is another opportunity for us to make even more history.
We have a good squad, and we’ll do all our power to win for the fans and secure a spot in the championship game.
