Andy Murray will take on a student who doesn't even have a world ranking on the opening day of Great Britain's Davis Europe/Africa Zone Group II promotion play-off against Hungary

Murray Andy Us Open - 0

Murray takes on Sebo Kiss in the second singles match at the Braehead Arena, Glasgow after James Ward opens up proceedings against Attila Balazs.

Murray's opponent is a 27-year-old law student who was ranked as high as 531st back in 2005 but now just fits his tennis around his studies.

He has had to be called up after problems in the Hungarian camp.

Their top player Adam Kellner was forced to withdraw last week due to a virus, while last year's junior Wimbledon champion Marton Fucsovics was left out because of personal problems, leaving 262nd ranked Balazs as their only ranked player.

"It's always fun coming to the Davis Cup," said Murray as he looks to bounce back from his US Open semi-final defeat to Rafael Nadal.

"I'm a bit tired and I only hit for the first time on the court on Wednesday but I'll just try to win the match.

"I don't look back, I look forward and try to improve.

"You can spend a lot of time looking back and wondering at things you could have done. You learn from mistakes and then move on. This week is the first week of that process and I'll try to get better."

As for Kiss, he said he had nothing to lose against the world number four.

"I can play without pressure or expectation so we will see what's going to happen," said Kiss.
