Great Britain's Davis Cup play-off with Croatia will take place in Umag in September.

The clay courts of country's westernmost city will see Britain attempt to build on their victory over Russia earlier this month and return to the top level for the first time in five years.

Their hopes are likely to be enhanced by the inclusion of Andy Murray, who has pledged to make himself available having not played for Britain since the clash with Hungary in Glasgow two years ago.

GB captain Leon Smith said: "We look forward to the challenge of an away tie on clay and will be ready for this all important match."

The tie will be played from September 13-15 with Murray lining up alongside either Dan Evans or James Ward for the singles.
