Well, with no Andy Murray representing, Great Britain’s Davis Cup hopes have taken a hit as the team travel out to Rouen to take on France over the weekend. This is on clay as well which makes it all the more difficult for the British players to go and land victory. Great Britain are 11/4 underdogs at Bet365 for the tie, while the French are heavy odds-on at 2/7 to win the fixture and progress.
Last season both of these made it to the semi-finals of the Davis Cup and this is the first that they have squared off on French soil since back in 1992. With Andy Murray injured, the British are headed up by Dan Evans who is joined by Kyle Edmund, Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot. France rolls out Lucas Pouille, Nicolas Mahut, Jeremy Chardy and Julien Benneteau.
The action starts on Friday, April 7th with Kyle Edmund up first as he takes on world number 17 Lucas Pouille. Edmund is 7/4 underdog at Bet365 to take the win in that opener. Great Britain did win the last Davis Cup meeting (in Glasgow on grass) a couple of years ago, and they have won Davis Cup tie on clay in each of the last two seasons.
However, this is a tough tie for them as France are running as joint outright favourites along with Serbia to win the Davis Cup 2017 outright at a quote of 3/1. Great Britain are back at 9/1 with only Belgium and Italy priced longer than they are for success.
