Murray to play for GB in Glasgow Davis Cup tie

Have your say

Andy Murray will be in Glasgow next year to play for Great Britain against the United States in their Davis Cup World Group tie at the Emirates Arena, the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) has announced.

The first-round tie will take place from March 6-8, with the winners set to face either France or Germany in the quarter-finals.

World No. 6 Murray said: “I’m really excited about coming to Glasgow to play in a World Group tie.

“It’s going to be a huge week for our team and I’m looking forward to be able to play in front a home crowd.

“I did play Davis Cup in Glasgow a few years ago where we received incredible support, but this is a World Group tie so it’s a massive deal and we’ll be doing everything we can to get the win.”

This is Great Britain’s second straight year in the World Group after the team maintained their position within the world’s elite by making the quarter-finals in 2014.

Great Britain upset the Americans in San Diego with a 3-1 victory in this year’s first round and will be hoping to replicate that performance on home soil.

The Emirates Arena will have a temporary tennis court built with a 7,100 capacity.
