Andy Murray, Dan Evans, Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski were picked to play the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid for Great Britain. The team's captain Leon Smith explained how he took the decisions. Smith said: “I’m delighted to name our first four players to represent GB for the Davis Cup Finals.
Dan is playing some of the best tennis of his career and firmly deserves his place back inside the world’s Top 50 and it’s been absolutely fantastic to see Andy back competing again including his incredible win in Antwerp yesterday.
Jamie and Neal have been gaining much momentum as a team with impressive semi-final runs at Cincinnati, US Open, Beijing and Shanghai. We are in a good position with improved strength and depth in our team and will be naming the fifth player in the next couple of weeks.
We are looking forward to bringing our best tennis to the group phase and as always, we are excited to play for our many home fans and all those traveling out to Madrid”. Javier Alonso, CEO of Kosmos Tennis, spoke about the partnership between Davis Cup and J.
Safra Sarasin: “It is a great pleasure for us to announce this agreement with Bank J. Safra Sarasin and thereby welcome such a prestigious financial institution to become part of the competition. This support increases the reputation of the event internationally and we hope that the synergies of this partnership will be enormously positive for all”.
