Andy Murray has withdrawn from Great Britain’s team for the Davis Cup Finals because of a shoulder injury.

Britain face Serbia – led by 24-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic – in the quarter-finals on 23 November.

“I’ve picked up a minor shoulder injury which means I won’t be able to take part in the Davis Cup,” said 36-year-old Murray.

“I’m gutted not to be part of the squad but my focus is now on rehab and getting ready for the new season.”

Dan Evans also recently withdrew from the GB team because of a calf injury.

He was replaced by Joe Salisbury, with Cameron Norrie, Jack Draper and Neal Skupski the other members of the squad.

Captain Leon Smith has until Monday to confirm a replacement but the line-up is expected to be Draper and Norrie in the singles, with Skupski and Salisbury the doubles team.

Britain’s Davis Cup ties will be shown live on BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website and app.

The other quarter-finals will be played between 21 and 26 November.
