Great Britain begin their quest to win their first Davis Cup since 1936 with a pair of singles matches against Belgium on Friday. 

Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund are the chosen representatives of coach Leon Smith's side, picked in the hope they can give Great Britain a 2-0 lead heading into the second of three match-days.

Edmund, the world No 100, opens the final in Ghent by playing Belgium's top-ranked player, the world No 16 David Goffin.

His inclusion in Smith's Davis Cup squad was confirmed on Thursday when it was revealed that doubles specialist Dominic Inglot would be left out altogether in favour of three singles players.

Edmund has the odds against him as he is thrust into battle against Goffin, but Great Britain will fully expect to get at least one victory on the scoreboard when Murray takes to the court.

The British No 1, and second-ranked player in the world, is meeting Ruben Bemelmans in the final match of Friday.

Bemelmans is the world No 108 and his match-up against Murray is by far the biggest moment of his career.

Friday's two singles encounters are the precursor to a doubles match on Saturday - then two more singles matches on Sunday, if they are needed.
