Andrew Murray has been named in the Great Britain Davis Cup team for next month's World Group play-off tie against Austria in Portschach.

The young Scot is named in the squad for the first time and will line-up alongside Tim Henman, Greg Rusedski and Alex Bogdanovic.

"Andrew has earned his place due to his excellent form recently," said GB captain Jeremy Bates.

"He is a young, exciting and versatile player and is at home on any surface."

Bates is confident that his squad can perform well in the potentially tricky contest.

"Tim and Greg continue to perform exceptionally on the world stage," he said.

I'm really excited to get a recall because every Davis Cup is something special
Alex Bogdanovic

"This is a very strong squad with an exciting blend of experience and youth.

"It will be a very tough tie and we are looking forward to the challenge."

Bogdanovic is determined to make his mark after getting the call to return to the GB fold.

The 20-year-old has been out of favour after being banished by the Lawn Tennis Association earlier this year over attitude problems.

"We had a talk during Wimbledon and agreed that whatever happened, happened," he said.

"I'm really excited to get a recall because every Davis Cup is something special and I think it's going to be a great learning experience."
