Great Britain will count again on Andy Murray in Davis Cup. Interviewed by Sky Sports, the world no. 1 assured that he will play the away quarter-final tie against France after missing the first-round tie against Canada last weekend.
'The tie against Canada was tricky,' Murray recognized. 'I needed to have a break, I was definitely tired when I got back from Australia and my body was pretty pleased I took some time off. But away to France, after Miami, I'm into the swing of things and I've had enough rest.' The British player is returning from the Australian Open fourth round loss to Mischa Zverev.
He will play the ATP 500 event of Dubai that takes place from 27th February to 3rd March. Murray also spoke about Denis Shapovalov who hit the chair umpire during his match against Kyle Edmund in Davis Cup. ´It was shocking.
I have never seen anything like that before. I am still not sure exactly how he managed to do that. That is the thing with emotions. When someone drives in front of you in the road, sometimes the tendency is to snap or swear or shout or scream or drive right up behind them.
The situation was close to being very dangerous. You could suspend him, you could fine him more money, but I am sure the embarrassment will be enough for him to learn from that and make sure it never happens again.´ ALSO READ: Toni Nadal: 'Djokovic and Murray are the favourites to win the big titles'
