‘We need to keep monitoring Andy’

Murray, 32, did not feature in the quarter-final after captain Smith decided not to recall the former world number one, who also missed the match against Kazakhstan after a laboured performance in the opening win over the Netherlands.

In the Scot’s absence, 24-year-old Edmund has won both of his matches, while Evans dug deep to earn his first victory in Madrid against Germany.

Smith had said before the quarter-final that it would be one of his toughest decisions whether to name Murray in the team or not and he was giving little away about his selection for the semi-final.

“He [Murray] wasn’t feeling great on the court. It was tough for him and if we have players like Kyle and Dan playing at a really good level then they are ready to play. We need to keep monitoring Andy,” Smith told BBC Sport.

“While Kyle and Dan are playing at that level he knows it is not like it used to be where he has to play.

“That’s a good thing for us. The squad is really strong now.

“If it is the same team as against Germany then I’ll be really happy and if Andy comes in I’ll also be really happy.”

Britain or Spain will face Canada or Russia in Sunday’s final.
