Marray hoping to break into Britain Davis Cup team


Wimbledon doubles champion Jonny Marray is targeting a Davis Cup debut in 2013.
The British star sprang to prominence with his stunning victory alongside Dane Freddie Nielsen back in the summer but despite having a Grand Slam title on his CV has yet to represent his country in the team competition.
The established pairing of Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins have played – and won – the doubles rubber in GB’s last three ties, so Marray knows he faces a tough battle to win a place in the line-up.
“Davis Cup is definitely something I want to be involved in,” he said.
“But Colin and Ross are an incredibly strong set-up and had a great year. They just missed out on the (ATP World Tour Finals at the) O2, so it’s going to be tough to break into that. They are an established team together.
“But it’s something that’s a goal of mine — to be involved in that and play for my country.”
GB’s next tie will be at home to Russia in April and Marray will get the chance to impress Davis Cup captain Leon Smith at the LTA’s new winter training base at La Manga in Spain this week.
Marray heads out on Monday to join other British stars — including Fleming and Hutchins — at the training camp where he will look to improve specific areas on his game before returning to complete his pre-season in his home city of Sheffield.
