GREAT BRITAIN

Captain: Leon Smith
Leon Smith, unlike many other Davis Cup captains, is first and foremost a coach rather than a former player. He began coaching professionally at 18 and has held several senior coaching roles within British tennis and worked with players including Andy Murray. 

He was appointed as Davis Cup captain in July 2010, overseeing Britain’s victory in the competition five years later – the first Davis Cup title since 1936.
