Andy Murray ready for GB’s Davis Cup challenge


Andy Murray believes Great Britain are ready to overcome a strong France team in their Davis Cup quarter-final at Queen’s Club.

Britain will try to reach their first World Group semi-final since 1981 when the tie starts in London on Friday.

Murray, 28, hopes to win at least two points in singles just a week after reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals.

“Over the last couple of years we’ve had good performances. I think this is our level now as a team,” he said.

“This weekend is going to be a tough ask against four top grass-court players that are all really, really good players, so it will be a tough challenge for us, but we have an opportunity to win if we all play our best level.”

James Ward is set to take up the other singles place, in the week when he broke into the world’s top 100 for the first time, with Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot among the doubles options for captain Leon Smith.

Andy Murray admitted that he is not yet able to put last Friday’s defeat by Roger Federer at Wimbledon completely behind him.
