Andy Murray claims that he "could be convinced" to change his mind and participate in this year's Davis Cup Finals with Great Britain.

Andy Murray has hinted that he could make a U-turn on his decision to skip the Davis Cup Finals, claiming that he could be 'convinced' to take part.

Great Britain's initial four-man team for November and December's Finals was announced on Monday, with Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans, Neal Skupski and Joe Salisbury all set to take part.

Davis Cup captain Leon Smith has affirmed that a fifth team member will soon be announced, although Murray had previously claimed that he would likely miss the event and take a break ahead of the 2022 season.

The three-time Grand Slam winner has seemingly left the door open for a recall, though, saying: "Never say never, maybe I could be convinced to play," in quotes attributed to The Times.

"When I was getting asked about it, I had six weeks in a row planned. I am not young, I need to rest as well. When I have played, the Davis Cup has always been physically very demanding.

"At times I've played matches when I probably shouldn't have. There were many times when I was younger where I had injuries and the team and everyone knew about that and sort of made me play.

"When you're playing for your country and stuff, there's always an extra pressure when people are trying to get you to play because you don't want to let your team down. Sometimes I've maybe not been protected in these situations in the past and it cost me. I just want to be mindful of that in the future."

Murray is currently preparing to face Carlos Alcaraz Garfia in the last-16 of the Vienna Open after defeating Hubert Hurkacz in three sets on Monday.
