Murray to miss Britain’s Davis Cup tie against France
Britain will have to make do without world number one Andy Murray for their Davis Cup quarter-final in France after he was omitted on Tuesday from captain Leon Smith’s team due to injury.
Wimbledon champion Murray is still struggling with the elbow injury that forced him to miss the Miami Open.
“Not having Andy in the side is obviously a big loss …but most importantly we all wish him well for a speedy recovery back to full health and fitness,” Smith said.
“I know that he would really want to be here with the rest of the team.”
The 2015 champions will instead rely on Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund, ranked 43 and 45 respectively, for the match in Rouen on April 7 to 9.
Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot are the doubles players.
While Murray’s absence is a blow he also sat out the World Group first round tie in Canada which Britain won.
