Andy Murray to miss Davis Cup tie against France

Andy Murray will miss Great Britain’s Davis Cup quarter-final against France next month as he recovers from an elbow injury.

Murray, 29, pulled out of the Miami Open almost a week before his opening match because of the elbow issue. Dan Evans, Kyle Edmund, Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot will line up for Britain for the tie in Rouen from 7-9 April.

GB captain Leon Smith conceded it was “a big loss to our team” to be without the world number one.

The tie will be played indoors on clay at the Kindarena, and Britain will rely on the same squad that overcame Canada in the first round, when Murray was also absent.
