Andy Murray is hoping Great Britain’s Davis Cup fixtures in Scotland can provide a fine platform to mark the death of the Queen.

Great Britain face the United States, Kazakhstan and Netherlands in Group D, with their matches taking place at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow.

Murray, who was knighted in 2017, wants the occasion to reflect how integral the Queen was to the nation.

“It has obviously been a very sad week with the news about the Queen passing away,” he told Sky Sports.

“But I think here will be a chance for everyone to show how much she meant to everyone and I’m sure there will be songs sang and minute’s silence observed.

“She obviously had an amazing life and I think here, these few days when Great Britain are competing, will be a chance for everyone to celebrate her and everything she did.

“I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to play in front of her and compete at Wimbledon when she came along which was a really nice memory for me.”

Murray joins Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans and Joe Salisbury in the British team for the Davis Cup having last featured in the tournament in 2019.
