Cape Town - Andy Murray has confirmed that he will play a part in Britain's Davis Cup second round clash with France.
After a disastrous Australian Open campaign that was ended in
surprising fashion by Mischa Zverev in the fourth round of the event,
Murray opted not to make himself available for selection for Britain’s
first round Davis Cup clash with Canada.
Britain won that tie 3-2 in controversial circumstances after the
deciding rubber was brought to a premature conclusion when Canada's
Denis Shapovalov smashed a ball into the face of umpire Arnaud Gabas.
In the aftermath of that result, Murray has announced that he will be present when Britain take-on France in France in April.
"The tie against Canada was tricky," Murray told Sky Sports.
"I needed to have a break, I was definitely tired when I got back
from Australia and my body was pretty pleased I took some time off.
"But away to France, after Miami, I'm into the swing of things and I've had enough rest."
The two nations met at the same stage in 2015 with Britain winning at home on grass at Queen's Club.
France are likely to choose clay for the tie.
Murray was instrumental in Britain winning the Davis Cup in 2015 when he won all 11 rubbers in four rounds.
