Andy Murray and Cam Norrie woes leave GB Davis Cup captain with tough Novak Djokovic call | Tennis | Sport
“I think it’s good that we have options and that’s why it’s good if the players are staying active closer to the time because then you see the confidence, the form, especially if it’s indoors, a similar environment ,” he explained. “But obviously Evo is not playing now, obviously Cam needs a break, which was brutal for Andy yesterday. Not everyone is active. But we still have a good team, we just have to figure out who gives us the best chance.
“Obviously the No 1 singles will be very difficult against Novak. Don’t match 2, everyone will be watching that and will know that the doubles are as important. Not to say something can’t happen in a Number 1 single but obviously it would have to be a very special performance on the day.”
Although Djokovic is the favorite no matter who he faces between Norrie, Murray and Draper, the British captain is still not losing the belief that his team can achieve great things. “You have to believe you can win. It would be a big upset, but there’s no point in going in and writing it off,” Smith added.
