London - World No 2 Andy Murray confirmed on Tuesday that he will play for Great Britain in their Davis Cup quarter-final in Serbia next week despite Novak Djokovic opting out of the tie for the hosts.

The Lawn Tennis Association named Murray in a squad that also contains Kyle Edmund, Jamie Murray, Dan Evans and Dominic Inglot, for the three-day tie in Belgrade from July 15-17.

World No 1 Djokovic chose to skip the tie after losing in the third round at Wimbledon.

"In making himself available for the tie, Andy has once again shown incredible commitment to his country and his proven Davis Cup record is second to none," said Leon Smith, the captain of the British team who are the defending champions.
