The 28-year-old, who lives in London, became a British citizen in March 2015 and among home players the world number 49 is only behind Andy Murray in the men's professional rankings.

He has fought an unsuccessful battle to be eligible for Britain in the Davis Cup, and he admits that a desire to compete in that event, plus the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020, played a big part in this latest move.
