Andy Murray keen to play full role in Davis Cup defence
Murray sealed the Davis Cup title with a win over Belgium`s David Goffin.
London: Andy Murray remains committed to playing a full part in Great Britain`s Davis Cup defense despite the prospect of a packed schedule hampering the world number two`s chances of leading the side to a repeat triumph.
Murray was instrumental in ending Britain`s 79-year wait for the title that culminated with victory over Belgium in Ghent last November and he will be back on court for a first round tie against Japan in Birmingham on Friday.
Should his side advance past the Kei Nishikori-led Japan, Murray has pledged to play in a potential quarter-final against either Serbia or Kazakhstan that falls between Wimbledon and the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
"That`s the plan, but it`s hypothetical just now. Providing everything goes well, I would play in the Davis Cup, then have a little break and play Toronto and the Olympics, and potentially not play in Cincinnati," Murray told the BBC.
"I`ve always enjoyed representing my country. Statistically I`ve played by far my best tennis when I`ve played for Great Britain."
The 28-year-old sealed the Davis Cup title with a win over Belgium`s David Goffin, having contributed to 11 of Britain`s 12 winning rubbers in the World Group campaign.
Victory against Japan could see Murray pitted against c rival and world number one Novak Djokovic should Serbia also advance.
