Andy Murray to skip Davis Cup after early Indian Wells Exit

One of the best UK tennis players, Andy Murray, is set to skip the Davis Cup after the third-round exit at ATP Indian Wells.

The 34-year-old was knocked out of the ATP Master in the third round in two straight sets, 6-4 7-6 (7-4) by the German Alexander Zverev.

Andy Murray was the hero back in 2015 when the UK recorded its 10th Davis Cup title as he won 11 points out of a possible 12, which helped Britain win for the first time in 79 years.

In an interview for BBC Sport, the Brit said that after the 2019 Davis Cup, he struggled to get in form until September the following year, and he feels that he has given a lot to this tournament.

The Brit has accepted a wildcard to play in Antwerp and Vienna but insists that his schedule will depend on his body and fatigue levels.

The first match for Great Britain in the Davis Cup will be on 17 and 28 November against France and the Chech Republic in Innsbruck.
