Andy Murray has officially been left out of Great Britain's Davis Cup team for their quarter-final tie against France.
The three-time Grand Slam champion will play no part in next month's showdown due to an elbow injury, which forced him out of the Miami Open.
"Most importantly we all wish him well for a speedy recovery back to full health and fitness," BBC Sport quotes Smith as saying. "I know that he would really want to be here with the rest of the team."
It is unclear when Murray will be fit to return to action.
