Andy Murray says he thinks the Davis Cup should become a 'mandatory event.' More details from 7pm tonight on @bbc5live
He believes top players are forced into skipping ties because 'we don't have much flexibility in our schedule at all.'
Murray is saying he would like the Davis Cup to be given greater weight - so he could play more ties at the expense of smaller ATP events
Don't take the word 'mandatory' too literally as clearly players can't be forced to play an event they might not be selected for .
but the sentiment is that he feels the top players should be allowed to prioritise Davis Cup without it affecting their ranking
