Glasgow | Davis Cup World Group Play Off

Great Britain’s last-ever three day Davis Cup tie begins today in rainswept Glasgow, and the mood of the British fans in this imposing and historic city is decidedly subdued. Following the decision to change the format of the Davis Cup for 2019 onwards, the only thing riding on this tie for Great Britain is whether or not we will be seeded for the new-look Davis Cup Finals qualification round next February.

Did I think I'd be playing Davis Cup by the end of the year? No, not really. Dan Evans

The atmosphere is sure to change when Dan Evans takes to the court to open the tie against Uzbekistan’s number one Denis Istomin, the highest ranked player on either side. For Evans, returning to the Great Britain team after his suspension last year, this is the extension of a Davis Cup career which began back in 2009, and for Istomin it sees a chance to continue a run of excellent recent form.

“Did I think I’d be playing Davis Cup by the end of the year? No, not really,” Evans admitted. “I feel like I’m playing pretty good again, and hopefully I can just keep putting my game out on the court and improving,” he added.

Second up its Cameron Norrie, Britain’s highest-ranked player at the event, making his home debut for Team GB against Uzkekistan’s No.2 Jurabek Karimov. Norrie’s rise up the rankings this year has been remarkable; today gives him the chance to take the next step in a highly promising career.

In the doubles, Britain’s Jamie Murray – fresh from his US Open mixed doubles title win – will team up with Dom Inglot to play Sanjar Fayziev and Istomin.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray will miss the match to continue his gradual return from hip surgery.

British number one and world number 16 Kyle Edmund is also absent as he recovers from a recurrence of tonsillitis.
