Teams were announced for next weekend’s Davis Cup final between Belgium and Great Britain in Ghent. The host Belgians will turn to David Goffin and Steve Darcis in singles while the Brits will counter with Andy Murray and 19-year-old Kyle Edmund who will make his Davis Cup debut with everything on the line.

Edmund is ranked No. 99 well behind Aljaz Bedene at No. 45. But the ITF announced today that they still haven’t granted the former German Bedene clearance to play for Great Britain. That decision will come next March.

The official draw takes place next Thursday. Matches begin on November 27.

“To represent your country at the Davis Cup Final is a huge honour and will be a new experience for me and all of the team,” Murray said. “I’m really excited about the tie in Belgium, they have some very talented players who will make this a tough contest. We have had amazing support from our fans in the previous ties and I know the ones travelling for the final will play their part.”

This is the first time that Great Britain has reached the final of the Davis Cup in 37 years, having last lifted the trophy in 1936. Belgium has never won the Davis Cup. This is their first final since 1904.

The teams:
David Goffin
Steve Darcis
Ruben Bemelmans
Kimmer Coppejans
Captain: Johan van Herck

Great Britain
Andy Murray
Kyle Edmund
Jamie Murray
Dominic Inglot
Captain: Leon Smith

RZ Says:

Edmund just won a challenger on red clay over the weekend. Hopefully he can keep up the good form!

Gregoire Gentil Says:

They should rename the Great Britain team, the Scotland team or worse/better the Murray team. Like the Poland team is the Radwanska team! haha

Everything will boil down to the double again.

I don’t get it why there is no Scotland Davis Cup team. For instance, there was a Scotland Rugby team in the cup last month.

…the former German Bedene?
Bedene was from Slovenia, not from Germany.

J-Kath Says:

This article is jumping the gun. Leon Smith has another week to decide who plays – yes, Kyle is a possible but so are the rest of the squad e.g. Ward etc.
