Great Britain face Spain in a first-round tie in the World Group of the Davis Cup this weekend in Marbella.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at four of the key talking points.
What are Britain’s chances?
As if facing Spain on clay was not daunting enough, the 2015 champions are without injured talisman Andy Murray and – for the first day at least – Australian Open semi-finalist Kyle Edmund. Edmund is struggling with a hip injury and only arrived in Spain on Monday after a gruelling fortnight in Melbourne. The world number 26 could yet be fit to take part in Sunday’s reverse singles, but the tie could be over before then with Spain able to call on three players ranked inside the top 25 despite the absence of Rafael Nadal.
Who could emerge as an unlikely hero?
Both Cameron Norrie and Liam Broady will make their debut in the competition in Friday’s singles matches. World number 114 Norrie has never previously played a professional match on red clay while Broady, the world number 165, has not played on the surface since losing in the first round of qualifying for the 2015 French Open.
What happens next?
An unlikely victory would see Britain qualify for a fifth straight Davis Cup quarter-final against either Australia or Germany. Defeat would result in a World Group play-off in September.
