London:

Andy Murray's mother Judy had been appointed as captain of Britain's Fed Cup team, the Lawn Tennis Association confirmed on Thursday.

Judy, who has helped coach her world number four son Andy, will take charge of the team in the Euro/Africa Zone Group I from February 1-4 next in Eilat, Israel.

She will also work closely with the LTA player team in mentoring and supporting some of Britain's most promising female performance coaches.

Murray said: "It is a huge honour for me to represent my country in this way, and the role presents a very exciting challenge, given the mix of talent, experience and determination we have in our top female players right now."

The post has been vacant since the summer, when Nigel Sears resigned to coach former world number one Ana Ivanovic.
