Andy Murray to lead British team
LONDON -- Andy Murray will lead Britain's team in the Davis Cup quarterfinals against Italy next month.
The Wimbledon champion heads the four-man lineup announced Tuesday for the April 4-6 matches on clay in Naples.
Murray, Ward and Fleming were part of the team that beat the United States 3-1 in February. Evans played last year in the win over Croatia that put Britain into the elite World Group.
This will be Britain's first Davis Cup quarterfinal since 1986.
The sixth-ranked Murray says Italy has "some very good clay court players with a passionate crowd behind them."
The winner will play either Kazakhstan or Switzerland in September's semifinals.
