In a statement from the LTA, team captain Leon Smith said: “It’s a great opportunity to bring this tie back to Glasgow. Emirates Arena is a venue that played a key role in our Davis Cup triumph in 2015 and holds a special place in our hearts. This is a chance to celebrate with our home fans and we can’t wait to put on a great performance to thank them for their support over the years.”
Certainly not any surprise to anyone, but surely disappointing to many, neither Kyle Edmund or Andy Murray are available for this tie. Edmund has struggled with illness and form since Wimbledon and had a disappointingly early exit from US Open, where he might have expected to certainly reach the fourth round on his ranking.
Murray had the difficult decision of weighing up the prospect of more potential five set matches against his continuing rehabilitation following his hip injury that resulted in a long injury lay-off, and a gradual return to the tour in the summer, and his first Slam matches since hobbling out of the Wimbledon quarter-final last year.
