share on:

Great Britain will have to do without their top ranked tennis star, Andy Murray for the Davis Cup quarterfinals against France next month.

The British tennis star was forced to withdraw from the ongoing Miami Open due to the elbow injury.

Great Britain will have to do with Dan Evans, Kyle Edmund, Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot against a France team that have five players in the top 25 singles ranking.

Team captain Leon Smith said: “This is a team with significant Davis Cup experience now and these guys have all stepped up and delivered performances at the very top of the competition.

“Not having Andy in the side is obviously a big loss to our team but most importantly we all wish him well for a speedy recovery back to full health and fitness. I know that he would really want to be here with the rest of the team.

“Facing France in a Davis Cup tie is a tough test for any group of players and this Rouen quarter-final will be no exception. They have the strongest depth of squad by far out of any nation in the competition.”
