Their semi-finals in the Davis Cup by Rakuten Madrid Finals 2019 showed that the British team is perfectly adapted to the new format despite Andy Murray not being fully fit. In 2021, they will try to go further although a demanding start awaits them in the evenly matched Group C where they will meet France and the Czech Republic.
- Andy Murray's form and the possibility of having him at his best, will largely determine the team's options. But, in 2019, they proved that despite not having him at 100% they are capable of making an impact in both singles and doubles.
- Dan Evans, Kyle Edmund and Cameron Norrie are the three British players currently in the top 100.
- Doubles pair Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski are among the best in the world and almost stopped Spain getting to the final last year. Having won both their doubles matches in the Group Stage, the pair didn’t take to the court in the quarter-finals (the British had already secured a 2-0 victory over Germany). The semi-final doubles match against Spain, however, was to prove decisive for a place in the final. Murray and Skupski showed their class and dazzled even the Spanish fans, falling eventually to Rafael Nadal and Feliciano Lopez 76 76. In his mixed doubles pairing, Skupski won the Wimbledon title in July, beating fellow Brit Joe Salisbury in the final.
- Leon Smith has been the British captain for 10 years. In addition to leading the team to the title in 2015, they were semi-finalists in 2016 and 2019 and quarter-finalists in 2014 and 2017.
- Great Britain has won the Davis Cup 10 times, most recently in 2015, which ended a drought of 79 years! Their previous title was in 1936.
