Murray pulls out of Davis Cup match

Andy Murray, playing for the first time since the Australian Open when he meets Marcos Baghdatis in Rotterdam tonight, has decided not to make himself available for Britain's next Davis Cup match against Tunisia in Bolton next month. However, the world No 5 has told Leon Smith, Britain's captain, that he hopes to play in their following tie in July.

Britain should still beat Tunisia in their Europe-Africa Zone Group Two match. Tunisia's highest-ranked singles player is Malek Jaziri, the world No 344. The winners will play either Ireland or Luxembourg. Britain need to win three matches this year to return to Group One.
