Murray Unsure of 2016 Davis Cup

Murray unsure of 2016 Davis Cup

The Brit, who is hoping to guide Great Britain to victory over Belgium in the final in Ghent this weekend, has been an ever present for the team over recent years and is the main reason as to why the country have been doing so well.

However, captain Leon Smith is already looking towards the event next year and he will be hoping Murray, who is a two-time Grand Slam winner, is available for selection.

This may not happen, though, with 2016 set to be very busy, with the Olympics in Rio added to the schedule, and the Scot will be looking for a second consecutive gold after the success in London.

Murray, who is set to partner brother Jamie in the double’s in the Davis Cup final, admits the amount of tournaments and preparation time needed could affect his chances of appearing for GB.

“The plan is to play the first match against Japan and assess it after that. We could lose the first Davis Cup match and then it’s not an issue,” he said. “If we win the match, get an away tie and play on clay again, it could be tricky. But all the players are in the exact same position next year. It will be interesting to see what everybody does.”
