M2Andy Murray says he will take part for the full Davis Cup competition this year.

The Scot hopes to defend the Great British title once again. Last year, Andy Murray won the Davis Cup for Great Britain almost on his own; in the final match against Belgium, he struck with his forehand to ensure victory for the GB team.

Murray suggests that this year’s Davis cup will be a lot harder than last year. “I really like representing my country and it would be a pleasure to play in the singles and doubles matches,” explained Murray.

If Great Britain can get past Japan, who have world number six Kei Nishikori, they will be facing Kazakstan or Serbia, who may have world number one Novak Djokovic in their ranks.

GB’s captain Leon Smith has a back injury so he won’t be taking part against Japan, so Kyle Edmund will join Andy Murray in the singles rubbers against the Japanese.

Off the topic but Leyton Hewitt may come out of retirement to play for Australia facing the United States.

That tie would follow on after the Wimbledon final and seven days before the Masters tournament in Toronto, which ends six days before the Olympic competition in Rio starts!
