“Having Andy Murray in the team is a real boost”: British No. 1 Cameron Norrie
Andy along with brother Jamie Murray was an instrumental part in the Davis Cup victory for the Brits back in 2015, the nation’s first title in 79 years after their last title came back in 1936. Andy will return to the competition for the first time since 2016 and his return will be a massive boost to the camp given the massive experience he will bring along with him to help his compatriots.
“It’s always special playing in a Davis Cup tie in front of a home crowd. Some of the best moments of my career have come representing my country in the Davis Cup, so to be a part of the team again means a lot,” said Murray speaking with LTA Tennis expressing his delight in joining the squad once again.
“Coming into a Davis Cup as the British No. 1 – it doesn’t get much better than that. Having Andy in the team of course is a real boost. Both him and Dan were here in 2015 when we went on to win the competition and having that experience is really important, but it also drives the rest of us to get there as well. I love team competition and relish the pressure of playing Davis Cup for my country,” said British No. 1 Norrie on Murray’s confirmation as the fourth player in the squad for the Davis Cup.
