The Davis Cup World Group quarter-final between Great Britain and France will take place on grass at The Queen’s Club, the Lawn Tennis Association has announced.

The tie will take place between July 17 and 19 and will be the first time Britain has met France in 23 years, with the winners set to face either Australia or Kazakhstan in the semi-finals.

Leon Smith, captain of the GB Davis Cup team, said: “Queen’s Club will be a unique and special venue for this quarter-final tie against a very strong French team.

“Our British team have all had very good results as individuals at Queen’s Club, in particular Andy Murray having won the event on three occasions.

“The grass courts at Queen’s are some of the best in the world and our team will look to use the courts and the passionate home crowd to full advantage.”

World number three Murray added: “Queen’s will be a perfect venue for our quarter-final match against France. I’ve been playing at Queen’s for 10 years now so I feel very at home there as do the rest of the British team, so it’s a great choice.

“Fingers crossed it’s a memorable summer for British tennis.”
