Murray 'unlikely' to play Davis Cup quarter-final


Andy Murray says he is unlikely to feature in Great Britain's Davis Cup clash with Serbia this week following his Wimbledon triumph on Sunday.

Murray secured his third grand-slam title and his second at the All England Club with a straight-sets victory over Milos Raonic in front of an elated Centre Court crowd.

The 29-year-old was instrumental as Great Britain lifted the Davis Cup in 2015, but he is expected to sit out their last-eight encounter.

The defending champions' quarter-final begins in Belgrade on Friday, with much of Leon Smith's team already in place in the Serbian capital.

Murray will join them but does not expect to feature as he - like Novak Djokovic - opts to sit out the tie to recover ahead of the Olympic Games and US Open next month.

"I spoke to Leon last night at the [Wimbledon] ball briefly," Murray told a media conference. "I'm genuinely calling him after here.

"I'd say it's looking unlikely but, even if I don't play, I'm still probably going to go anyway just to be there with the team.

"I feel a responsibility. The guys are all great. We are a team and whether I'm playing or not I'll always try to support them.

"Leon was flying this morning and I'll chat to him this afternoon to make a final decision."
