Following the birth of his and wife Kim's first child on February 7, Andy Murray has admitted he wants to make daughter Sophia "proud".
The British No.1 returned to action last week for the first time since becoming a father, claiming two singles victories and a doubles win in the Davis Cup.
He played a vital role in 2015's victory in the same tournament, leading Great Britain to a win over Belgium last November.

And whilst he's relishing the prospect of retaining the Davis Cup, Murray doesn't want to miss seeing his daughter grow up.
He told the Independent in an exclusive interview: "I really don’t want to miss seeing those changes. Even when I’m away for a day I feel bad.
"I feel I should be there and I want to be there as much as I can. So when I’m leaving the house at eight in the morning and getting back at eight at night, I feel bad."
Fatherhood seems to have brought with it success for a few of tennis' big names, with Roger Federer winning two of his 17 Grand Slams following the birth of his twins in 2009, whilst Novak Djokovic has won multiple majors as a father.
Murray hopes to replicate such fortunes: "I've been training again and certainly haven’t been worse. I’ve been very motivated in practice.
"Obviously, with Novak and Roger it’s worked out well. I don’t know if having kids has made them play better or if they’re just really good."
The Scotsman ultimately wishes that whatever he achieves in tennis will make his daughter proud.
"The outcome of a match is not everything, but I want my daughter to be proud of her dad when she grows up and sees what I did."
