Great Britain have named an unchanged team for November’s Davis Cup quarter-final against Serbia in Malaga.

Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans, Andy Murray and Jack Draper bested Australia, Switzerland and France in Manchester  last month to qualify.

Doubles specialist Neal Skupski also reappears alongside the quartet, who are all ranked inside the world’s top 100 singles players.

Novak Djokovic is set to feature for Serbia in the tie on 23 November.

“We will go to Malaga with confidence and belief that we can be successful,” said captain Leon Smith, whose side are ranked two places higher than their last-eight opponents.

The quarter-final versus Serbia will of course be a big challenge with a team led by world number one Novak Djokovic but we have to believe we can win.”

Evans and world doubles number four Skupski remain captain Leon Smith’s preferred doubles partnership.

The winners of the tie will advance to the semi-final on Saturday, 25 November.

GB last lifted the Davis Cup in 2015, when Murray was part of the team which secured victory over Belgium in the final.

The Scot defeated Germany’s Yannick Hanfmann 7-5 6-4 in a gritty contest on Monday to reach the second round of the Swiss Indoors in Basel.

The 36-year-old will now face world number 23 Sebastian Korda or Argentine Tomas Martin Etcheverry as he bids to win his first ATP Tour title since 2019.

“It was tough. The first four or five games were something like 45 minutes. I don’t remember having that really before, it was ridiculous,” said Murray.

Norrie was also in action on Monday, beating Austria’s Filip Misolic 7-6 (9-7) 4-6 6-3 at the Vienna Open.
