World number one Andy Murray

World number one Andy Murray is expecting to return to Great Britain's Davis Cup team for April's quarterfinal against France.

Murray opted not to face Canada last weekend, instead choosing to take an extended break following a shock fourth-round exit to Mischa Zverev at the Australian Open.

In his absence, Britain were 3-2 victors and Murray is set to add further firepower against France, a tie likely to be played on clay, in the last eight.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Murray said: "My body's pretty pleased I took some time off.

"I've had enough rest and I'll look forward to [France]. It'll be tough. I assume they'll probably put it on clay. I don't know where they'll play it, but Monte Carlo would be good."
