MURRAY IN GRIM GB WARNING.

ANDY MURRAY has warned British tennis fans not to expect any real improvement in the country's Davis Cup fortunes for the foreseeable future.

The British number one made it 10 consecutive singles victories in the competition against Poland at the weekend but the hosts still ended up on the losing side and were relegated to Europe/Africa Zone Group II for only the second time ever.

Murray said: "The boys' side needs to get a lot better. Tennis is a big sport in the UK, with the competitions we have and the money tennis makes, but the level we're at is not particularly good.

"There's a lot of things that need to improve but it's going to take a lot longer than six months."
