Great Britain’s Davis Cup Team Captain Leon Smith confirmed the omission of British and world number one Andy Murray from his team to play France in the World Group Quarter Finals next week, due to the elbow injury that kept him out of the Miami Masters. World number two Novak Djokovic does return to action for Serbia against Spain next week and the home team will be relieved to hear Nadal and Bautista Agut will not feature for the visitors in Belgrade.
The ATP Miami Masters I now down to the quarter-final stage and two of my outright selections 16th seed Alexander Zverev (50/1) and 13th seed Jack Sock (40/1) are still in with a shout of reaching the final at the weekend. Zverev will face 12th seed Kyrgios tomorrow for a place in the semis and the winner will face either fourth seed Roger Federer or tenth seed Tomas Berdych. Sock faces fifth seed Nadal in the early hours of tomorrow morning for a place in the semis and the winner will face either second seed Nishikori or the only unseeded player left Fognini, who play tonight.
