The 23-year-old was not selected for the tie, which the team lost 4-1, with captain John Lloyd instead favouring Ross Hutchins, like Murray a doubles specialist.
“It was disappointing and it felt like it was a bit of a kick in the teeth,” he told The Guardian. “I hadn’t necessarily been playing the best tennis but I still felt that I was more than capable. It’s the first time in my career that I was struggling a little bit and for John to not really back me was more disappointing than necessarily being in the team.”
