Andy Murray expected to play
Murray was confined to his hotel room with a stomach bug during the draw Thursday but the Wimbledon champion is likely to line up against Seppi in Friday's second singles match, when he will be looking for his sixth consecutive win against the Italian.
Italy has not reached the final four since 1998.
