Dan Evans is part of Great Britain's squad for the Davis Cup 2017
Andy Murray is not part of the four-man squad who will begin the 2017 campaign because he is still resting after the Australian Open.
Dan Evans, Kyle Edmund, Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot have instead been named for the campaign starting this evening in Ottawa, Canada.
With Canada also missing their star player Milos Raonic, Britain go into the tie as the favourite.

Why isn't Andy Murray playing in the Davis Cup? Leon Smith speaks out
“Evans, fresh from a final appearance at the Sydney International and his run to the fourth round of the Australian Open, begins events at TD Place Arena with the first rubber against 17-year-old Denis Shapovalov – last year’s junior Wimbledon winner," said Team GB.
“Edmund then plays Vasek Pospisil – ranked in the world’s top 40 this time last year – in the second of Friday’s singles matches, ahead of Saturday’s doubles encounter.
“That will see former World No. 1 Jamie Murray team up with fellow Olympian Dom Inglot as they take on Daniel Nestor and Pospisil.
“The line-ups for Sunday’s reverse singles have yet to be revealed, but they are likely to be straight switches from Friday’s games, but the captains can change the line-ups until Saturday evening.”
