Preview

Six players were selected to represent Great Britain and take on hosts Australia and reigning champions USA in a considerably stacked Group C, including Katie Boulter, Cam Norrie, Dan Evans, Neal Skupski, Fran Jones, and Maia Lumsden.

Boulter is set to mark her debut after capturing a record-extending year. The 27-year-old reached a career high of 50 after earning her first WTA title at the Rothesay Open Nottingham in an all-British final.

Boulter is set to reignite her partnership with Norrie with whom she successfully overcame tennis superstars Serena Williams and Frances Tiafoe at the Hopman Cup in 2019.

Norrie, ranked world No.18, returns to the lineup after playing a key role in helping Great Britain to the Sydney City Finals in January. The British No.1 won all three of his encounters, earning his first scalp over Rafael Nadal to top Group D.

Evans will rejoin compatriot Norrie in making a second appearance at the tournament, having contributed to his team’s 4-1 trouncing over Spain in the group stages last year.

The 33-year-old also captured personal successes this year, reigning supreme in Washington to earn his first career ATP 500 title.

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Jones’ call-up signified a significant career milestone as she prepares for what could be her maiden appearance representing Great Britian on the international stage.

Last season Jones achieved a career-high of world No.149 and has won a total six titles on the ITF circuit since turning professional in 2017.

This year’s Wimbledon Men’s Doubles champion Skupski could also make his debut in the competition alongside fellow doubles specialist, Lumsden.
