After two successful victories in 2011, the Davis Cup returns to Glasgow in February 2012 bringing top class Tennis to Glasgow for the third time in 12 months.
With the over whelming success of the two Davis cup ties that were played in July and September 2011 at the Braehead Arena, the British team as chosen to once again play their tie in Glasgow.
Their opponent this time around will be Slovakia, who should provide the GB team with a sterner test as this will be the first Europe/Africa Group I match after promotion was secured in the last Braehead match.
The Britsih team this time will have to do without the current world number 4 Andy Murray as he will miss the match against Slovakia because of injury concerns following the Australian Open.
Britain’s number 2 & 3 James Ward and Dan Evans will compete for team GB and they will be joined by double specialists Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins.
Leon Smith, born in Glasgow is the current captain of the AEGON GB Davis Cup team. In his short tenure as the Great Britain’s team captain he has had great success with a perfect record so far of played four, won four. This match against Slovakia though will be his most crucial tie to date as it will be his first in charge of a Europe/Africa Group I match.
