Davis Cup – Murray’s lead Great Britain to victory against Japan!

Andy and Jamie Murray were once again at the heart of the victory for Great Britain as they advanced to the quarter finals of the Davis Cup after a 3-1 victory against Japan.

Andy began the tie with a straight sets win against Taro Daniel in what was his first match in a month after becoming a dad. In the second match on day 1 between Kei Nishikori and Dan Evans the Brit did give the world number six a run for his money but just couldn’t take his chances against a far from convincing Nishikori.

As usual Day 2 was doubles day and I was surprised to see Andy play the doubles match as I thought Dom and Jamie could win together but Andy and Jamie were solid as usual as Great Britain won in straight sets to give them an important 2-1 lead going into day 3.

Day 3 was the day of the big players for Great Britain and Japan. Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori both performed extremely well with Andy taking a two sets to love lead but the former US Open finalist fought back to two sets a piece but Andy had the final say and took the thriller in five sets to send Great Britain to the quarter finals against Novak Djokovic and Serbia later this year!
