Andy Murray helped Great Britain win the Davis Cup in 2015

The Davis Cup Finals group stage begins this week with Great Britain one of 16 nations trying to make it through to the knockout stage.

Great Britain take on Australia, France and Switzerland in their round-robin group matches at Manchester's AO Arena.

Andy Murray missed the 3-1 victory over Colombia in February but is back in the squad, alongside Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans, Neal Skupski and Jack Draper.

The top two from Britain's group will advance to November's knockout stages.

"We can't wait to play Davis Cup in Manchester in front of a huge home crowd," Britain's captain Leon Smith said.

"We have a great team with a lot of Davis Cup experience who will be ready to give it everything in a tough group with Australia, Switzerland and France."

Murray, who was integral to Britain ending a 79-year wait for glory in the men's team competition as they triumphed in 2015, was left out of their qualifying win on the Colombian clay.

Smith suggested the surface was not ideal for Murray, who at the time had played just three matches on clay since 2017.
