27 March 2012 / 19:00

Leon Smith, Captain of the AEGON GB Davis Cup Team, has today named his players to face Belgium in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Euro/Africa Zone Group I tie from 6-8 April 2012 at Braehead Arena in Glasgow.

The team will be:

  • James Ward

  • Dan Evans

  • Colin Fleming

  • Ross Hutchins

This is the second round of the Euro/Africa Zone Group I, with the winners advancing to the World Group Play-offs which will take place from 14-16 September.

Leon Smith commented: “After the last win against Slovakia the team were on a real high but we are now fully focussed on preparing for the tie against Belgium who we know will provide an altogether new challenge.

"It will be a real step-up against an opposition who is higher ranked than us, but if the team can put on some fine performances as they did against Slovakia, then we have a real chance of qualifying for the World Group Play-offs.

"We will give it absolutely everything and with the home crowd support behind us, we are very much looking forward to a hugely exciting tie.”

AEGON UK Group Marketing Director, Paul McMahon, added: ““As supporters of tennis at all levels in Great Britain, we’ve been delighted to see the progress that Leon Smith and the AEGON GB Davis Cup Team have been making. Belgium will provide a real test, I’m sure, but hopefully home advantage at Braehead will give the team a lift again.”
