Queen's to host Britain-France Davis Cup quarterfinal

LONDON (AP) Britain has chosen to play its Davis Cup quarterfinal series against France on grass at the Queen's Club.

The Lawn Tennis Association announced the venue for the July 17-19 World Group matchup on Tuesday.

It will be the first time Queen's has hosted Davis Cup play since 1990, when France beat Britain 5-0 in a World Group playoff.

Queen's hosts an annual grass-court tournament in the lead-up to Wimbledon.

Andy Murray has won Queen's three times and calls the venue a ''great choice'' for the Davis Cup.

Murray says ''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.''

Britain defeated the United States 3-2 in the first round, while France beat Germany 3-2.

It will be the first Davis Cup meeting between the two since 1992.
