Commenting on his shoulder pain he said, "I had the problem in Abu Dhabi a couple of days ago. I had a scan in Abu Dhabi and that was all clear and it did not really make sense for a right-handed player to have a problem with their left arm."

Andy Murray gave his team an early lead by defeating Benoit Paire (6-2 7-5). However, Heather Watson defeat against Alize Cornet (6-2 6-2) gave an equalizing point to France, before the Britons won the mixed doubles (6-4 2-6 10-8).

The temperature was 44 degrees and Murray said, "It was a bit of an eye-opener when we arrived at the practice court that morning. The conditions there are fantastic to get ready for Melbourne."

Britain will play Poland and Australia on Wednesday and Friday respectively, with the group winners reaching Saturday's final.
