Andy Murray To Miss Davis Cup Final 8 Due To Injury

Briton has minor shoulder problem

Andy Murray has withdrawn from the Great Britain squad for the Davis Cup Final 8, the former World No. 1 has confirmed.

The 36-year-old Murray has picked up a minor shoulder injury which has ruled him out of his country’s quarter-final clash with Serbia, which is scheduled to take place in Malaga on Thursday.

Murray played a major role in Great Britain’s run to the Davis Cup title in 2015. Captain Leon Smith can still fall back on a strong squad for the nation’s quarter-final tie, however. Cameron Norrie and Jack Draper will likely lead the singles charge against a Serbia team led by World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, while Smith also has Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski available for doubles selection.

The 2023 Davis Cup concludes in Malaga from 21-26 November, when The Final 8 teams compete in a knockout format to decide the winner of the annual teams event.
