SHEFFIELD’S Jonny Marray will make his Davis Cup debut on Saturday when he teams up with regular doubles partner Colin Fleming for Great Britain against Russia at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

Marray and Fleming have had a week off from tournament play after losing in the first round of the Sony Open in Miami last month. The Monte-Carlo Masters Series in Monaco will be their next ATP Tour event, starting on April 14.

A victory for Great Britain in Coventry would see them advance to the World Group play-offs. Singles matches are Friday and Sunday.
