Davis Cup 2023: Andy Murray pulls out of the GB team because he hurt his shoulder, and Liam Broady is called up.

In the quarterfinals on November 23, Britain will play Serbia, which is led by Novak Djokovic, a 24-time Grand Slam winner.

“I’ve picked up a minor shoulder injury which means I won’t be able to take part in the Davis Cup,” said Murray.

“I’m gutted not to be part of the squad but my focus is now on rehab and getting ready for the new season.”

Broady was going to play tennis in a league for a French club next week before being called up to replace Murray, who is 36 years old.

“It’s not the way I’d have wanted to be called up, but as always I take great pride in representing Great Britain,” 29-year-old Broady said.

“I can’t wait to help the team progress through the tournament in any way I can.”

Broady, ranked 102 in the world, has only played in the tournament once before, in 2018 in Marbella against Albert Ramos-Vinolas on clay.

Dan Evans had just quit the team because of a calf injury, so Great Britain leader Leon Smith was already without Evans.

Instead, Joe Salisbury took his place. The other players on the team were Cameron Norrie, Jack Draper, and Neal Skupski.

Live streams of Britain’s Davis Cup games can be found on BBC iPlayer, the BBC Sport website, and the BBC Sport app.

The last four games will take place from November 21st to November 26th.

Review and Analysis
Russell Fuller is a tennis reporter for BBC.

It’s no longer a surprise for Serbia that Captain Leon Smith’s team is made up of people they didn’t expect.

Since either Jack Draper or Cameron Norrie could get hurt, Liam Broady is the clear choice to add to the team.

But they are very likely to play singles instead, and the doubles team is set since neither Dan Evans nor Andy Murray can play.

I’ve been told that Murray might still be in Malaga for some of the week. It will depend on how well he gets better, but having him there as a strategist and driver would be very helpful.

Murray might not have played anyway, but it will be hard for him to watch while we wonder if we will ever see him play for Great Britain in the Davis Cup again.
