The rising British ace, 18, travels to Switzerland next week for the two nations’ World Group play-off clash in Geneva.
But first Jeremy Bates’ team of Murray, Greg Rusedski, David Sherwood and Alan Mackin stopped in Evian, France, yesterday.
Bates has them training on clay — the surface they meet the Swiss on.
We are all looking forward to it. Having a few days on clay will do us some good.
