Andy Murray and his brother Jamie have both been named Great Britain’s Davis Cup team to face the United States next month.

The tie takes place in Glasgow from 6-8 March in what will be Britain’s first World Group contest at home since 1999.

Asked about the possibility of playing doubles with his brother, Andy Murray said on Tuesday: “Obviously there are certain things about it that are great and then some things about it that are tough.

“I think Davis Cup for me is maybe easier than playing on regular tour events because in the Davis Cup we aren’t playing for ranking points and money. You’re playing to win for your country.

“It’s not like I’m playing to help my brother out. I’m playing to help, to try and win matches for the team.

“I do feel a lot of pressure when I’m playing with my brother in tour events just because if we lose in the first round, he doesn’t make any money or a living that week, really. He will lose money. So I get nervous in those events.

“Whereas I think in the Davis Cup it is much easier to just go out and play – if we play together. I don’t know if that will be the case or not, because Dom Inglot’s played extremely well and beat the Bryans in Australia.”
