“And I want to make sure in the off season I get to spend as much time with my family as I can because I have been away from that recently and that will be case when I go to Australia as well.”
Murray suffered an injury when competing in the 2019 Davis Cup Finals in Madrid, and he was forced to miss the season curtain raiser in Melbourne.
With professional tennis forced to take a break due to the pandemic, he was unable to play again until the tours resumed the following August.
As a result, Murray feels he has earned the right to rest and avoid any health issues that could arise if he represents GB.
“I’ve given a lot to the Davis Cup, and sometimes to my own detriment physically,” he said.
