Andy Murray has endorsed the decision to stage Great Britain's Davis Cup quarter-final tie against France between 17-19 July at Queen's Club in London.

The decision made by the host nation and submitted by the Lawn Tennis Association was officially confirmed on 21 April, with Queen's thought to have been chosen ahead of other viable venues such as Eastbourne's Devonshire Park.

Wimbledon was not considered due to a potential scheduling conflict, while London's O2 Arena and SSE Hydro in Glasgow were also not in the running.

"Queen's will be a perfect venue for our quarter-final match against France," world number three Murray said.

"I've been playing at Queen's for 10 years now so I feel very at home there as do the rest of the British team, so it's a great choice. Fingers crossed it's a memorable summer for British tennis."

Great Britain captain Leon Smith was also pleased to secure Queen's as a venue, pointing to the strong record of the current British team on the pristine grass courts that traditionally play host to the annual Aegon Championships in June.

"Queen's will be a unique and special venue for this quarter-final tie against a very strong French team," he said. "Our British team have all had very good results as individuals at Queen's Club, in particular Andy Murray having won the event on three occasions.

"The grass courts at Queen's are some of the best in the world and our team will look to use the courts and the passionate home crowd to full advantage. The atmosphere and crowd support will be vital."

Smith's team head into the last-eight tie full of confidence after registering their second successive win over the USA in March.

Murray was pivotal to that 3-2 victory with wins over Donald Young and John Isner, while James Ward also contributed with a surprise success over the latter on day one.

France, meanwhile, beat Germany in Frankfurt to advance to the latter stages of the competition and count the likes of Gilles Simon and Gael Monfils among their current contingent.
