Andy Murray hopes the British Davis Cup games in Scotland can provide a good platform to celebrate the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Great Britain meets USA, Kazakhstan and the Netherlands in Group D, whose games will be played at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow.
Murray, who was knighted in 2017, wants to take this opportunity to reflect how important the Queen was to the nation.
“It’s obviously been a very sad week with the news of the Queen’s death,” he told Sky Sports.
“But I think everyone here will have a chance to show how much she meant to everyone and I’m sure there will be songs sung and moments of silence observed.
“She’s obviously had an amazing life and I think these few days as Britain competes will be a chance for everyone to celebrate her and everything she’s done.
“I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to play in front of her and compete at Wimbledon when she showed up, which was a really fond memory for me.”
Murray joins Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans and Joe Salisbury in the British team for the Davis Cup, having last competed in the tournament in 2019.
