Britain chooses Glasgow for Davis Cup tie vs US

The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) Andy Murray will return to his native Scotland for Britain's Davis Cup match against the United States next year.

The Lawn Tennis Association on Monday selected the Emirates Arena in Glasgow to host the March 6-8 World Group first-round tie.

Murray played in a lower-tier Davis Cup tie in Glasgow in 2011 against Luxembourg.

He says "this is a World Group tie so it's a massive deal" and "I'm looking forward to be able to play in front of a home crowd."

It will be Britain's first Davis Cup match since Murray came out in favor of Scottish independence. Voters rejected independence in a referendum in September.

Murray led Britain to a 3-1 win over the U.S. in the first round of the Davis Cup in San Diego this year.
