Andy Murray would be welcomed back to GB Davis Cup team, says captain Leon Smith
Andy Murray could make his return to the Great Britain Davis Cup team once he regains his full fitness, captain Leon Smith has confirmed.
Murray was the star of the show in 2015 when Smith led GB to Davis Cup glory, but has barely had the chance to reprise the role since due to injury.
The Scot is currently in Asia stepping up his singles return, but should he come through that he will be in contention for selection.
“As Andy has said publicly, we have had positive conversations,” Smith told the Scottish Herald.
“He is keen to be part of it but the important thing from his point of view is that he concentrates on the Asia swing where he has three events, plus two back in Europe.

“Everyone right now thinks about Andy in the doubles and that is right at the moment, but hopefully he starts to build up the bank of singles matches, so the singles can become a conversation for him as well.
“He has been amazing over the years,” Smith added. “Of course, he is someone who thrives under pressure, and enjoys the team element.
“But whether it is Davis Cup or the ATP cup event, it has always been about what is best for the team and I think that is a really good quality he has.”
