World number one Andy Murray has been ruled out of the British team to play France in next month's Davis Cup quarter-final with an elbow injury, it was announced Tuesday.
The same injury forced him to pull out of the ongoing Miami Open and he will now miss the April 7-9 tie away to France in Rouen, with the absence of the three-time Grand Slam champion and double Olympic gold medalist dealing a huge blow to Britain's hopes of reaching the last four.
"Not having Andy in the side is obviously a big loss to our team but most importantly we all wish him well for a speedy recovery back to full health and fitness," said British Davis Cup captain Leon Smith.
